Origin Malt is a virtual resident at Innovate New Albany.  One of the founders of Origin Malt is New Albany resident Victor Thorne.

Origin Malt is an innovative supplier of high-quality malt, cultivating relationships between farmers, researchers and brewers with the intent to bring malt — the soul of craft beer — back to the Midwest. Prior to prohibition in 1920, barley accounted for nearly 350,000 acres of Ohio’s crops. As of 2017, that number dropped drastically to fewer than 500 acres of barley being grown for malting purposes. Within the next five years, Origin Malt will plant at least 75,000 acres of malting barley and operate a brand new, state-of-the-art malt house in Central Ohio. Origin Malt is bringing malting back to the Midwest while pushing the industry forward with ingenuity and a hand-tailored approach to every piece of the supply chain. Regional craft brewers, who value quality, innovation and local connection, can currently purchase from Origin a locally grown two-row winter barley– Puffin. Origin Malt aims to provide products that push the boundaries of malting through better partnerships and processes, celebrate the heritage of Midwest malting and brewing and drive the industry into the future.
