Our green initiatives don't stop at the door of the brewery. Spent grain, used hop flowers, berries and brewers yeast are given to local farmers for livestock feed. Nylon malt bags are collected for gardening, sandbagging and eco-construction. Wooden bungs used to seal kegs are chipped into nutrient-rich garden compost. The pallets and slip-boards used to transport kegs are returned to the distributor and reused. Five-gallon buckets that are used to hold everything from cleaning agents to fruit products are reused in the pubs to recycle oil and glass. Much of our brewing equipment is purchased second-hand and retrofitted. In fact, most of the smaller brewery fermenters originated in England. We will never stop looking for ways to produce quality beer with sustainability in mind!
