Malt and grain supply

March 08, 2021

A survey carried out by Drinks Ireland in 2019 found that Irish breweries and distilleries purchase over 220,000 tonnes of Irish produced malt and grain. This represents over two thirds of all malt and grain used in Irish brewing and distilling. This includes the full capacity of Irish malting output as well as a substantial volume of un-malted barley and smaller volumes of other Irish-grown grains.
