It’s summertime and time to quaff a brew.
Many craft brewers already make mindful business decisions based on minimizing environmental impact, and being socially responsible contributors to their communities. Other favorites like Kettlehouse and Squatters Pub Brewery, not only operate sustainably, but with female brewers* at the helm. And, there are more organic microbreweries than ever before. Chug an organic beer to take care of the environment and your health – we’ve heard these brews can cure what ails you! Unlike earlier crafted organic wines, they now are fantastically flavorful.
Perhaps you prefer lagers, fermented and aged cold, smooth, and delicate in flavor. Or ales, robust due to the short, warm aging period. Whatever your palate and whether you’re an English, German or Czech-style hop head, there’s much to choose from and now is the time to sample the seasonal-only offerings.
Boutique brew pubs are springing up all over the country where you can enjoy some great grub along with craft ciders and sodas. Many operate sustainably, as well. Let us know about your favorite microbreweries and we’ll share with our readers.
