Water: When you live in the high desert, water is a precious resource. Our state-of-the-art wastewater treatment system allows us to clean and reuse almost 80% of our water for irrigation purposes.
Solar: New Mexico has over 300 days of sunshine a year that we don’t want to waste. In 2011, we installed an 18-kilowatt solar panel system on the roof of the brewery which offsets the brewery’s electric bill by roughly 15%.
Cans: In 2017, we transitioned from a combination of cans and bottles to all cans. Cans are more efficient to pack and lighter to transport, saving gas. They are also more easily recyclable than glass.
Six-Pack Holder: Our 6-pack holders are made of recycled plastic. And if people bring them back to the brewery, we give them a 10 cent credit towards beer. Mmmmm…beer.
Taprooms: Two of our taprooms (Green Jeans Farmery and Tin Can Alley) were constructed from reused shipping containers.
