Keeping it Green as best we can
We like to think we are an environmentally conscious company but beer takes quite a bit of energy to produce. To help alleviate this, we have installed a tracking PV solar array which helps provide some of our base energy requirements. We also reclaim the heat from the boiled wort as it is cooled going to the fermenter, so we have hot water/liquor ready for the next brew.
The spent grain and hops are composted and then spread on the hops each year. Growing what we can helps reduce the transport of ingredients coming in. We use lightweight glass bottles, paper not plastic labels and minimally printed cardboard boxes rather than shrink-wrapped cases. We have swapped from Caustic to Ecover Gold as our alkaline cleaning solution.
