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.
