It’s simple: There would be no damn tasty beer without the natural beauty of Bend and beyond. It has inspired us from day one. That’s why sustainability is rooted in our culture and forms a foundation for everything we do.

Our partners

We’ve joined up with conservation organizations and programs.

  • Protecting wild places

    We’re partners with the Conservation Alliance, Deschutes River Conservancy, Freshwater Trust and Upper Deschutes Watershed Council.

  • Reducing energy use

    We’re a Green Power Partner through the EPA, and a member of the DOE Better Plants Program, committing to 10% energy use reduction before the end of 2023.

  • Minimizing our carbon footprint

    We purchase renewable energy through the Blue Sky program annually and take pride in minimizing our carbon footprint at all locations.

Our places

As we’ve expanded our Bend campus, we’ve created smarter and more energy-efficient buildings and operations.

Here are some highlights:

  • A nighttime cooling system in our warehouse maximizes our building’s insulation.
  • Destratification fans and efficient condensing heaters save on natural gas.
  • Using Thermo-breaks adjacent to our coolers to keep heat out and insulation under the concrete floor make the chilling units more energy efficient.
  • Optimized sky lighting and motion sensors help keep the lights off.

Our promise

We’re dedicated to improving our sustainability efforts year after year. We’ll continue to optimize our equipment, conserve water, recycle and compost our waste at the pubs, source local ingredients, and always, always, always be on the lookout for what’s next.
