A Tribute to William Soles

With heavy hearts, we bid farewell for now to William Soles, our maltster extraordinaire who left this world too soon.

Will is written all over this business. He has been a part of Grouse before it had a name and was only a vision Twila had when they met in 2012. Within months he was fully committed, helping select our first tank, outfitting it with a custom screen, and macgyvering his way through uncharted territory. He provided support and guidance, offered encouragement, and a helping hand every step of the way.

Together, Will and Twila created Grouse Malting and Roasting Company. They also have a son, Alpen Henley Soles.

William, you will forever be remembered here at Grouse as a man who knew how to get the job done and how to have fun on the journey. We’ll miss your smile, enthusiasm, and light.
