Artisan Malting Facility Coming to Loudoun

Great news for Loudoun's craft beverage lovers! Governor Terry McAuliffe announced today that Pilot Malt House will locate an artisan craft malting operation in Loudoun County. The company will invest nearly $1 million to construct and operate the facility, and will work directly with Virginia producers to source more than 2 million pounds of Virginia grains over the next three years. Malted grain is a key ingredient in craft beer and distilled spirits.

“This unique facility in Loudoun County represents another step forward for Virginia as we cement our reputation as key players in the nation’s fast-growing craft beer industry ...” said Virginia Secretary of Agriculture and Forestry Todd Haymore.

Erik May, Owner of Pilot Malt House, added, " ... Pilot Malt House, since its inception, has existed to connect farms to breweries and distilleries. We will provide the best quality malt to Virginia breweries and distilleries made from Virginia-grown grain made by Virginia-raised folks in a truly Virginia facility.”

The Commonwealth is partnering with Loudoun County and Pilot Malt House on this project through the Governor’s Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development (AFID) Fund, which is administered by the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
