California is a prime location for craft brewers and microbreweries. However, fungi and virus disease susceptibility have made it difficult for many barley varieties to thrive in California’s Central Valley. Lynn Gallagher has spent twenty years developing disease and fungi resistant malting barley varieties, working with UC Davis, USDA, and Ron Silberstein of Admiral Maltings, to breed barley varieties for agronomically valuable traits and malting quality at a variety of scales.
