NEWS STORY / USA (June, 2019) — Breweries are going solar! This year 44 breweries competed in the second annual Brews from the Sun competition, with more than 13,000 people voting on their favorite breweries that are powered by solar.
The Brews from the Sun competition, put on by Solar United Neighbors and NewAge Industries’ BrewSavor, had three categories: Regional, Microbrew and Brewpub. Hawaii’s Maui Brewing Co. won the regional brewery category, North Carolina’s Mad Mole Brewing won the microbrewery category, Minnesota’s Canal Park Brewing Company won the brewpub category.
“We are inspired by the many breweries around the country who are looking to the sun to power their beer,” said Anya Schoolman, Solar United Neighbors Executive Director. “They’re setting a great example not just for other breweries, but for everyone who can save money and take control of where their energy comes from by going solar.”
