Admiral Maltings & The Rake

Admiral Maltings was founded by two long-time San Francisco brewing industry veterans, Ron Silberstein of ThirstyBear Organic Brewery and Dave McLean of Magnolia Brewing Company, along with Curtis Davenport, who has an extensive background in organic farming and small batch malting. Together, we partner with California farmers to source quality grain and produce exceptional, hand-crafted malt. Our malt not only helps brewers make great beer, but it also enables them to operate more sustainably and to deepen their connection with local agriculture.
