In addition to our goal of making a great beer we also try to contribute our part in keeping the environment healthy. Therefore, we have taken several measurements to keep Franconia Brewing Company running GREEN!
Recycling – 100% of our mash (left over hops after brewing) is recycled by Koster Kattle Company (www.KosterKattle.com) by turning into cattle feed. Happy cows also come from Texas! We also use a recycling can for all brewery waste materials that can be recycled.
Energy – We operate out of an state-of-the-art energy efficient building, reducing the amount of energy needed as much as possible. For the needed energy required to power our brewery we have chosen Green Mountain Energy.
Water – The majority of our water is used as an ingredient in the production of our beer. A large portion of the water used for the production process i.e. for the cooling is collected and re-used.
Transportation – By being located in the market in which we serve we can drastically reduce the necessary emissions to transport our beers to our customers.
We don’t produce waste or trash that will end up in a landfill. For that reason, Franconia does not have a trash dumpster.
