How Green Is Your Beer? Vermont DEC Hosts Brewers On Sustainable Brewing

Feb 5, 2018

With more than 50 breweries in the state, Vermont beer makers have made the Green Mountain State a good home for beer lovers. But all those breweries use a lot of water, grain and energy. To help the state's brewers make beer more sustainably, state environmental officials are hosting their second-annual Brewery Day.

Catherine Craig, leader of the Vermont Green Business Program for the state Department of Environmental Conservation, and Avery Schwenk, co-owner of Brattleboro's Hermit Thrush Brewery, join Vermont Edition to discuss brewery best practices when it comes to conservation and environmental impact.
