A pioneer in Australian

malting since the 1860s

Barrett Burston Malting

With roots in the founding families of Australia’s malt industry, Barrett Burston Malting Co. has been delivering premium malted barley for customers for more than 150 years. As our name suggests, Barrett Burston traces back to the merging of two families, the Barretts and the Burstons, both of which were involved in the Australian malting industry since the 1800’s.

From the beginning, Barrett Burston has grown alongside the Australian craft beer industry and we now employ over 100 staff and operates three malting plants throughout Australia. We source top-grade barley from farms all across the country and are proud to support farmers who are passionate about growing a premium product.

We are dedicated to working directly with brewers & distillers to ensure that our malt matches both the required quality and flavour profile so they can continue to craft the best beers and whiskys. It is imperative to us that our malt is consistently at a high quality from the paddock to the pint glass.
