At Black Brewing Co we are conscious of our footprint on this amazing place we call home, so we take our role seriously and try and implement as many environmentally friendly practices that we can.
This is ever evolving as we strive toward finding more ways to minimise our impact on the planet. Below are a few of the practices we have adopted so far:
Infinite Energy installed a 100kW solar panel system in 2018 which supplies power to the brewery and venue.
Water use for all our venue gardens comes directly from the dam located on our property.
Our brewers supply local farmers with our spent grain and yeast to use as feed for their cattle and calves.
Over the past year we have made the switch from using bottles to aluminium cans to package our beer. Not only are aluminium cans 100% recyclable, they also weigh less than glass which in turn reduces the carbon footprint. According to
transporting a glass bottle emits 20 percent more greenhouse gases compared to aluminium cans.
