Dr. Paul Schwarz received the Craft Maltsters Guild Soles of Malt Award during the 2021 Craft Malt Conference, which was held virtually February 10-12. Schwarz leads the North Dakota State University Malting Barley Quality project in the Department of Plant Sciences.   

The Craft Maltsters Guild was established in 2013 with the mission of “promoting and sustaining the tradition of malting in North America,” and providing support for small, local, and independent malthouses. 

The Soles of Malt Award is named after the co-founder of Grouse Malt House in Wellington, CO. The award is given to individuals for leadership, selflessness, and philanthropic stewardship in the craft malt community. The award includes a scholarship to be used for further education and collaboration opportunities for craft maltsters. 

Schwarz has worked at NDSU since 1988, leads the Institute of Barley and Malt Sciences, teaches Advanced Cereal and Food Chemistry and Malting and Brewing to NDSU undergraduate and graduate students, and has conducted numerous malting and brewing short courses and seminars in partnership with the NDSU Northern Crops Institute, industry, and malting and brewing groups.
