Since April 4. 2019, our brewery has been 100% powered by solar energy. Installed on our roof is a 287kW photovoltaic solar array that offsets 100% of our electrical usage (and the other businesses in our building), and pushes at least 5,618 kWh per year back into the power grid.
Since opening in 2017, we have strived to implement sustainable practices & support a variety of environmental causes. As substantial users of electricity (we brew on a fully electric system), we feel a responsibility to seek opportunities to decrease our carbon footprint. We’re happy to say we’re the first (and currently only) brewery in the state to be entirely solar powered.
- Compost all food waste & service-ware in our Biergarten
- Send all of our spent grain to local farms
- Implement clean wastewater practices
- Our grounds, which include a native pollinator meadow, are part of the Norwalk River Pollinator Pathway.
Our mission is to continue to grow our brewery mindfully, respectfully, & sustainably.
