Default Grows own Hops & Grains?

Are there any commercial breweries, other than the big ones - i.e., a micro/craft brew most likely - that grow their own grains/etc and hops? Or does everyone outsource to buy those from other people?

Tundra Brewery in New York does.

Here's an article about them.

The beer is good, but nothing special. I like mine better.

Thanks Jon. I wonder what others do it. I have a family situation that is in a state of transition that might open up the possibility of doing a brewery that is similar.

Brian and Minnie are great people, and I am sure they would answer any questions you have. Their pub is in an old barn filled with old breweriana , the silo has a handle and neon lights that makes it look like a beer mug. Great place, Great People. And if you get there on the right day, Brian is doing chainsaw carvings......kind of like Disneyland for adults.

Sierra Nevada does a little bit and supposedly Boston beer does some as well.

Cool! Thanks guys. My biggest fear would be malting my own grains. I have not tried that, and it seems like quite the process. But I am putting the cart before the horse, have to see how current business unfolds first.
