The MAD FIRKIN FESTIVAL takes place at the Historic Bale Grist Mill. One of the few operating Grist Mills West of the Mississippi built in 1846 using French Quartzite milling stones. At Mad Fritz Brewing Co we mill our Blue Corn there for our Blue Corn Pale Ale. It’s a floor malted Bleu Corn we malt in house just down the road in St Helena California. Many of the picture credits go to Matt Morris
