STORY LINK / USA (APRIL, 2020) — April 22, 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. And if ever there were a time to treat the planet with care and respect, it’s now. Doing so with a drink in hand? Even better.
Sustainability has become a regular buzzword across countless industries, but few businesses have eco-friendly practices baked into their DNA quite like craft breweries. Over the last decade, craft beer makers and behemoths alike have committed to reducing waste throughout the brewing process. For some, this means donating spent grain to dairy farmers and ranchers. Others have installed devices to capture CO2 and enlisted solar panels to power their taprooms. Supporting any such brewery helps the cause, but if you’d like to drink beers that specifically give back to environmental causes, you can do that, too.
Here are six beers that donate a portion of proceeds to conservation projects and other eco-friendly initiatives. Pick one up for Earth Day, or any day.
