Making Beer

A farmer combines 2-row malt barley during harvest.


Harvest is a special time of year. It’s when farmers see the rewards of their hard work through the growing season. Mother nature can dictate what those results look like more times than not. A good friend and colleague invited me down one evening after work to ride around in the combine with him. It was a gorgeous September evening just east of High River where I met him.

The crew was in this field of 2-row malt barley that would later go to the maltster to make tasty beer! As the sun started to set, there was a perfect moment to jump out of the combine and grab this picture. I love the clouds and the farm yard in the background. It symbolizes a lot of things to success, reward, and hard work.
