Bechard said he was out of college and worked in golf-course management when his brother, Tom, a home brewer, mentioned he had a hard time finding supplies. That’s when he and his father saw the potential of the business.
They also saw the need to have brand-distribution rights to be competitive, Bechard said.
“We give our customers the brands they want to have at a lower cost per shipment,” he said.
They offer about 150 varieties of malt, hop and grain products. North Country Malt also offer several lines of treatment, brewing, filtering and cleaning products a brewer needs.
“We are a one-stop shop for a brewer’s ingredients,” Bechard said.
