Our Story:
We are a 75,000 bbl Microbrewery striving to continue our pursuit of a zero carbon footprint. Established in 1993 in 100+ year old brewery, we quickly outgrew our original brewhouse, and upsized to increase capacity. We were so focused on growth, that we didn't invest in green initiatives. It is past time, and with EcoDrinkers help, we expect to exceed the efficiency goals we set, and significantly reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. We will upgrade to state of the art technology and equipment for energy management. Our team of award winning brewers and dedicated staff are striving to implement sustainable manufacturing techniques, and the EE equipment will help us attain a zero carbon foot print while continuing to brew award winning beers..
