The modern sustainable brewery is defined by a consideration to improve all aspects of production, resource efficiency, and distribution to the customer. Through the development of auditing procedures to benchmark the efficiency of a brewery, industry-leading companies have provided inspiration for sustainability to an entirely new generation of craft brewers. Utilizing proven benchmarking methods, combined with the analysis of defining a sustainable brewery, Powder Keg Brewing Company implemented a benchmarking audit in order to assess current efficiency and find areas of process improvement. Breweries may represent only a small portion of water intensive industries; however, the greater effect of sustainability in brewing provides a worldwide benefit to businesses, humanity, and the environment.
