Event Preview | Deer Creek Malthouse’s Malt-A-Palooza

Dan Bortz

Malt is one of the most important ingredients in beer, and Deer Creek Malthouse is throwing a shindig to celebrate the craft of malting grain. Deer Creek’s Malt-A-Palooza aims to blow your mind and dazzle your palate with malt-inspired food, beer and spirits from their customers and friends.

As the first commercial malting operation in Pennsylvania since prohibition, Deer Creek Malthouse produces high-quality malt using traditional floor germination techniques. Malt-A-Palooza is their fall harvest celebration where you can learn what it takes to make truly local beer and spirits from locally-sourced ingredients.

This family-friendly event isn’t just about beer. There will also be hay wagon rides, yard games, a picnic area and guided tours of the craft malthouse. You can even bring your well-behaved, leashed dog!
