VICTORIA, BC – Phillips Brewing has announced the upcoming launch of a new initiative that will bring it even closer to goal of producing beer using as many local ingredients as possible.
Phillips Maltworks is an on-site malting plant that is the first in its size in Victoria. Two years in the making, it can process up to 20 tons of barley at a time, producing 18 tons of malt, and has storage silos for 100 tons of barley and bins for 80 tons of malt.
The Maltworks will be officially unveiled with a ribbon-cutting event for VIPs and media on September 11th. Malt produced using locally sourced barley will be showing up soon as an ingredient in various Phillips beers.
