The story of Rahr is one of tradition and family. A family inspired by vision, imagination and determination. Founded by entrepreneur William Rahr in 1847 as the Eagle Brewery, the company soon found that their ability to produce quality malt exceeded the needs of their tiny brewery.
Five generations later, Rahr Malting Company is still dedicated to the founder’s core values. The drive for excellence, astute judgment and confidence in meeting challenges have made Rahr Malting a legend.
With modern malting facilities at both their company headquarters in Shakopee, Minnesota and at their malthouse in Alix, Alberta, Canada, Rahr Malting Company maintains the traditions of quality and customer service that have been the standard of industry excellence for over 170 years.
