Growing For Beer

Does anyone out on this site do an custom growing for a local brewpub? I know that many micro breweries are always looking for organic or natural wheat and barley.

I just sent some emails out to a whole host of them in my area, introducing myself, my crops, and my style of growing. In addition, I asked for their feedback on both what they need and approximately what price they pay for it. 

While I am not sure if I have what it takes to grow for them, I sure would like to gain some information that will help my operation increase in size and scope.

If any of you have any ideas, feel free to email or call me. Thank you in advance.

Take some of your grains to the Brewery personally. Talk to them about why what you grow is better. If you raise livestock offer to pick up the spent grains as a supplemental feed for your stock and offer that stock to them so that they can say something tying the two together. You have a great idea there, run with it.
