The beer industry has a long history of taking initiatives to keep our planet green and more sustainable whether small or large. Help your customers celebrate Earth Day (April 22nd) and all month long with some delicious (and environmentally conscious) brews.
As one of the largest breweries in North America, Molson Coors is proud to be an industry leader in sustainable brewing efforts. Water stewardship is a key part of their 2025 sustainability goals, and this year for World Water Day, the brewery is working to preserve vital waterways and boost water efficiency across their brands to ensure no drop is wasted.
Earlier this year, Coors Light announced it will eliminate plastic rings from packaging globally, becoming the largest beer brand in North America to do so. And don’t forget Coors Pure! This USDA-certified organic beer launched with a mission to bring great taste and organically grown hops and barley to the light beer category.
Sierra Nevada is
also one of the biggest advocates for sustainability in the beer industry and is proud to say that they began brewing on a system made from recycled dairy equipment. They also installed the largest solar array in craft beer to diverting 99.8% of their solid waste from the landfill.
Sierra Nevada also offers its fans the opportunity to give back, while also indulging in one of their signature hoppy brews — Dankful IPA. When customers purchase this West Coast IPA, they’re helping to support nonprofits that stand up for social equality, economic well-being, and environmental protection. It’s Sierra Nevada’s way of saying “danks”.
Since their founding in 1995, Dogfish Head has been working to keep Mother Nature front of mind. And this April, Dogfish Head is going bigger than ever to celebrate Earth Month! The brewery will bring back their popular Mother Nature Let’s Do This! program for a second year in 2022 with new partnerships with Igloo and Patagonia Provisions, new POS and a sweepstakes that asks customers to Stand Up for Mother Nature for a chance to win incredible prizes!
In 1999, New Belgium Brewing out of Fort Collins, Colorado became the first wind-powered brewery in the United States. Following that, they installed a water treatment plant in 2002 to ensure their water runoff was treated properly before re-entering the city. The bottles are also designed specifically to reduce waste and were the first brewery to produce electricity on-site through solar technologies.
New Belgium is proud to admit that Fat Tire Amber is the first carbon-neutral beer in the United States. Now, their long-term goal is to be fully carbon neutral by 2030 across their entire operation.
