In the past we haven’t really shared it with you, but as our customers are increasingly interested in how we run the brewery behind the scenes we wanted to share with you how we do our bit to be an eco friendly brewery. This is what we do…
At Brightside Brewing we make sure we recycle: pallet wrap, grain bags, office paper, ink cartridges, shives and keystones, bottles and cans from production, electronic equipment and any waste with residual value is given to charity.
The spent hops and yeast go to be composted at the farms, which then help improve soil structure and nutritional value.
Where possible we re-use packaging material sent to us; a local engineering company uses our cardboard hop boxes to send his work to customers. What we can’t re-use is sent to be re-cycled.
Our cask and keg population is 100% stainless steel. It is continually cleaned, filled, used and returned to begin the cycle once again. We DO NOT USE one-way kegs! This is something that we care a lot about and also results in a cost saving to our customers as one-way tubs are an expense that has to be added to the wholesale price of beer.
Our customers are encouraged to keep our pump clips and re-use them rather than throw them away after one use (we don’t send them out automatically with every order). Surplus pump clips from old beers are given away to collectors or to charity.
