We service Rahr Malting, so it is not uncommon.

And you never ever had any bags ever "accidently" fall off the train car and into your trunk?

Na, Rahr is in Shakopee. No grain bags, but there are cars that leak it. It is hauled as a bulk commodity, so it goes directly to Bud as a bunck of grain in a hopper rail car and dumps out the bottom.

That being said it leaks all over the rail yard. Stinks to high heaven once it gets wet and rotten. I keep waiting to find a fresh leak and shovel up a few lbs.

We have trains that come to yuengling like that. My pop gets grain to mix in with his beagle food. If I knew what kind it was I would get him to get me a 5 gallon bucket of it. Guy just gives it to him. Guess in retrospect, what is a five gallon bucket to a commercial brewery of that size?
