Full Sail Brewing

Full Sail 27th Anniversary Wheatwine Ale

Sustainability, recycling and conservation is a big part of the craft beer culture and one of the many reasons I love the craft beer industry. Beer making is generally a pretty resource intensive process when you factor in everything needed to produce beer on a commercial level. To produce a gallon of beer it takes an average of 5 gallons of water. Extrapolate that to the over 50 million gallons of beer produced in Oregon alone last year and you get an idea of how much water is used in beer production.
