Your Local Homebrew Shop
Hoggetowne Ale Works has a grain room featuring over seventy varieties of malts and grains. Pull your own grist or shop while we do so for you - the choice is yours. We crack all grains fresh to order to maximize flavor and minimize staling (Recipe of the Month grains may be pre-packaged).
As with everything at Hoggetowne - if you don't see it, we can special order many malts we do not regularly stock. Also ask us about bulk orders - we always have 50-pound bags of domestic 2-Row malt for sale, and can often fill other requests for bulk purchases as well.
Please call the shop to confirm availability.
Malt extracts are the backbone of extract brewing, providing the majority of fermentable sugars that the yeast metabolize into alcohol. We stock a variety of extracts in liquid and dry versions.
