Beer Brewers Unite To Call For Action On Climate Change


WASHINGTON -- A group of 24 brewers from across the country have come together to cut greenhouse gas emissions from their operations and call for strong national action to address climate change....

"It's good for business, it's not just good for the environment," said Person. "We're lowering our operating costs. It's doing the right thing and having a benefit."

Also signing the declaration: Aeronaut Brewing Company, The Alchemist, Aspen Brewing Company, Brewery Vivant, Bouy Beer Company, Chuckanut Brewery and Kitchen, Deschutes Brewery, Fort George Brewery and Public House, Fremont Brewing Company, Georgetown Brewing Co., Guinness, Hopworks Urban Brewery, Ninkasi Brewing Company, Odell Brewing, Rockford Brewing Company, Smuttynose Brewing Company, Snake River Brewing Co., Standing Stone Brewing Co., and Wet Dog Café & Brewery.

The brewers hope that their advocacy reaches consumers, too. "Beer is near and dear to people's hearts. It's part of people's everyday activity," said Vervier of New Belgium. "I think when people see their favorite brands speaking out, it gives them courage to speak out. I think it makes it relatable for people."
