Sierra Nevada Sustainability: Brewers Recycle Better Together

“Friends of ours including Hi-Wire BrewingAsheville Brewing CompanyCatawba Brewing Co., and Riverbend Malt House unloaded trucks and vans filled with materials.”

“A big part of our story is local sourcing,” says Brent Manning, co-founder of Riverbend Malt House. “Beyond that, from a production standpoint…we’ve always had partnerships with local farmers to keep [spent] material out of landfill. But this recycling piece that captures our packaging waste was really kind of the last big-ticket thing that we were trying to find a better solution for.”
