Sustainability is an increasingly important topic to small brewers across the U.S. Short’s Brewing in Elk Rapids, Mich. recently unveiled the latest project in their sustainability campaign—solar panels on the roof of the production facility. Present for the ribbon cutting were U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow and representatives of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Senator Stabenow addressed the crowd during the ceremony stating, “Short’s Brewing Company is helping to fuel Michigan’s rapidly expanding beer industry that supports thousands of jobs across our state. With new solar panels to power production, Short’s is also supporting Michigan clean energy manufacturers committed to reducing our nation’s dependence on foreign oil.”
As a member of the Senate Bipartisan Small Brewers Caucus, Senator Stabenow supports breweries in Michigan and across the U.S. throughout the year. Learn more about the caucus and how you can invite your Senator to join at BrewersAssociation.org.
