The Sustainability Issue

For the March/April 2017 The New Brewer, we present our Sustainability issue. In this issue, we explore the growing number of LEED-certified breweries, ways breweries can learn sustainability from nature, and the unusual collaboration between Avery Brewing Company and the city of Boulder, Colo. In addition, we offer a glimpse of Washington, D.C.’s breweries, brewpubs, and better beer bars for the Craft Brewers Conference preview.


This issue is brought to you by YCH HOPS.
