Proximity Malt and Hop Head Farms have partnered up to better serve the craft brewing markets. Both companies have a similar focus on quality and sustainability which makes this partnership a natural fit.

Creating this partnership allows us to better supply the craft brewing market with alternatives to the current distribution system, one that focuses on understanding our customers and linking them to quality ingredients through a new, more direct supply chain.

With this approach, we can reach more of the market.  We are looking forward to sharing our industry expertise from each company with our customers to help strengthen our customer base.

We are excited to collaborate and offer our customers access to both products through one point of contact, saving busy craft brewers valuable time and shipping costs.
