Barley to beer

One of the stories I am working for MSU News Service is about following the barley trail from our research at MSU to a farmer’s field to a malt house and finally to a microbrewery in Belgrade (about 10 miles west of Bozeman).

Two weeks ago our photographer, Kelly, and I drove up to Great Falls to tour the MaltEurop malting plant and about an hour and a half northeast of there to visit a farm. You’ll have to read about it in Mountains and Minds magazine, but here are a few photos from our trip.
