The New Brewer January/February 2020

Sustainability Issue

For the January/February 2020 The New Brewer, we present our Sustainability issue. Sustainability has been on the minds of craft brewers since the earliest days of the industry, even before the term was integrated into common discourse. From conserving water to carefully managing wastewater to finding inventive uses for spent grains, this issue takes a look at how your brewery can strive to minimize its impact on the environment.
