Bottoms Up!

Huffington Post is recognizing August as Beer Month. In fact, they have narrowed down the top 8 U.S. sustainable breweries and Cleveland made the list! Check out these damn good, hard working, breweries and their sustainable practices. Have you been to any of these? Cast your vote here after reading the top eight!

1. New Belgium Brewery (Fort Collins, CO)
2. The Fish Brewing Company (Olympia, WA)
3. The Alaskan Brewing Company (Juneau, AK)
4. Full Sail Brewing Co. (Hood River, OR)
5. Brooklyn Brewery (Brooklyn, NY)
6. Great Lakes Brewing Co. (Cleveland, OH)
7. Sierra Nevada Brewery (Chico, CA)
8. Lakefront Brewery (Milwaukee, WI)

What makes this interesting and so unique is how these breweries are not only partnering with local farmers to deliver back spent grain as feed to the animals, but they are setting up Zero Waste initiatives, harnessing wind power, and rewarding employees who ride to work!

Eight top Sustainos for this beer month!
