Kiss Me, I’m an Earthkeeper

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, a toast to some of the brewing companies working hard to make their beers green (as in organic-green, not leprechaun-green):

Eel River Brewing Company in Scotia, CA (the country’s 1st certified organic brewery) is located in a former lumber mill; all the power used to brew is produced using scrap lumber and other mill leftovers.

Uinta Brewing Co. in Salt Lake City, UT boasts an energy-efficient facility that runs entirely on wind power.

Green Valley Brewing Company (the certified organic brewery of Anheuser-Busch) uses 100% organic barley malt supplied by family-owned organic farms and its packaging is made from recycled materials.

Bend, OR’s Deschutes Brewery sources its hops from a certified Salmon-Safe hops farm which uses healthy practices to help keep the Pacific Northwest rivers clean for native salmon.

And remember — whether you’re drinking green today or any other day — to please drink responsibly.
