One of the more refreshing aspects of the craft beer world is the sheer number of breweries that use their knowledge, time and product to better their own local communities.

Last year, one such brewery took it upon themselves to begin the conversation of sustainability by hosting a conference at their brewery.  There, they discussed sustainable brewing practices and the increasing impact of climate change on the quality and availability of ingredients needed to brew beer.

At the end of the conference, a “Declaration of Sustainability” was signed by all participating breweries and the St. Louis Brewers Guild. They also called upon many local communities, businesses and policymakers to take action in both promoting sustainability and reducing climate change.

“Sustainability may sound like a buzzword, but it really is a critical element for those of us involved in brewing beer,” says Alvan Caby, Sustainability Coordinator at Urban Chestnut. “We work with farmers and utilize natural ingredients, so we feel that doing whatever we can to employ sustainable practices is important to the existence of our industry.”
