Vermont has always been at the forefront of sustainability initiatives, and the craft beverage movement is no exception.
Our favorite spots for a quick nip are thinking more and more about what they can do to make a change to be sustainable, reduce their CO2 emissions, recycle or repurpose their materials, and dispose of their spent waste in a way that is good for the environment and our community. There’s no better time to talk about “going green” than on St. Patrick’s Day, and we want to say Sláinte to our sustainable partners making good brews and ciders while doing just that.
Vanguard Renewables works with Black Flannel Brewing and Distilling and Shacksbury Cider (just to name a few) to recycle their organic waste.

Instead of discarding their waste, these craft beverage makers are not just cutting their CO2 emissions but also helping keep the region’s family farmers in business.
