From Inhabitat – Here’s a list of America’s favorite sustainable craft breweries. We enjoy Sierra Nevada, Harpoon IPA, and Boulevard. Have you tried these or the others on the list? I’m going to check out Fairway to see if they carry these other brews. Kudos to these small craft breweries. They are fine examples of how art, craft, commerce and care for our environment can work.
The brewery creates 60% of its own electricity. Add to that with a slew of energy efficient strategies, greenhouse gas emissions reductions programs, an on-site wastewater treatment facility, and a 97% diversion program and composting system that keeps waste out of the landfill.
They have a number of energy efficient strategies in place lik, motion sensors and more energy-efficient chiller and freezers. Their spent grain is given to local farmers rather than sent to the landfill and brewery waste water is treated on site.
