Premier Malt Products

Long before Prohibition wiped out all but the most stalwart brewing companies, Pabst Brewing Company operated a division dedicated to extract development. In 1982, this division was purchased by a private buyer and thenceforth became known as Premier Malt Products, Inc. The company is now a leading independent supplier of domestic and imported malt extracts, both liquid and dry. Premier also recently extended the range of products it provides to U.S. customers by joining ranks with Pauls Malt (Mistley, England), the largest malt producer in the UK, in an exclusive distribution agreement.

Extracts

Premier produces a line of extracts marketed under the label "Reserve Gold Label." Most are brewed using a blend of American and European two-row Harrington and six-row Bonanza barley. The extracts are processed in Peterborough, Ontario.

   American rice: This malt extract produces a light-bodied, sparkling, thirst-quenching brew of the American light lager variety. Contains rice syrup, high malt glucose, and hop extract. (Requires additional sugar.) Available in 1.8-kg cans.

   Brewers wheat: A true brewers' wheat that produces American-style wheat beers with golden appearance, mild clove aroma, and a creamy head. Made with wheat malt for the production of American-style wheat beers. Contains hop extract. (Requires additional sugar.) Available in 1.8-kg cans.

   Brown ale: This blend of pale malt and dark crystal malts produces a full-bodied, mildly hopped, slightly sweet, malty beer. Contains hop extract. (Requires additional sugar.) Available in 1.8-kg cans.

   Continental lager: A full-bodied premium European-style lager with a more robust bouquet than the American version. Made of a blend of U.S.- and European-grown two-row Harrington pale, two-row Halcyon crystal, and six-row Bonanza barley. Contains hop extract. (Requires additional sugar.) Available in 1.8-kg cans.

   Cream ale: Designed to produce a wonderfully effervescent, very pale, lightly hopped ale. Contains Harrington two-row pale blended with Bonanza six-row malt, high malt glucose, and hop extract. (Requires additional sugar.) Available in 1.8-kg cans.

   Imperial stout: This strong, dark, rich stout with just a hint of molasses gets its distinctive body and bouquet from the blend of pale, crystal, chocolate, and black malts. Contains hop extract and molasses. (Requires additional sugar.) Available in 1.8-kg cans.

   Lager: A pale and light bodied American-style lager with a mild hop aroma. Contains Harrington two-row pale blended with Bonanza six-row barley malt, plus wheat malt and hop extract. (Requires additional sugar.) Available in 1.8-kg cans.
