Maris Otter is a two-row, winter variety of barley with a strong heritage in the UK brewing industry. After its introduction in the 1960s, it quickly became one of the dominant varieties because of its good malting characteristics, low nitrogen content and forgiving brew-house performance. Maris Otter is still highly regarded in the craft brewing industry, offering the small brewery the opportunity to create beers of unparalleled individuality.
