Local microbrewery wins environmental award

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Zwygart Real Estate

The next time you open a bottle of Fat Squirrel or Spotted Cow, you can do so with the knowledge that it was made by a brewery that not only cares about a quality product, but also cares about preserving our environment. 

Congratulations to New Glarus Brewing CompanyNew Glarus Brewing Company!  Our homegrown talent has received an award from Alliant Energy's Shared Savings program.

Shared Savings is a program that promotes energy efficient updates and planning for businesses.  New Glarus Brewing Company participated with construction of their new facility on the hill just south of New Glarus.

They developed an energy efficient waste water treatment facility to ease the burden on the municipal facility.  They utilized green building practices while building the entire facility.  The brewery also developed the facility with energy efficiency and environmental principals in mind.  Shared Savings helps businesses identify, implement, and finance these improvements.

Congratulations to Deborah and Dan Carey for their forward thinking environmental stewardship!  We are proud to have business owners like the Careys in the area.

Great plug for a local business. I am inspired. I think I will go down to the Boylan Street Bridge Pub in Raleigh and support my local brewer today. It doesn't take much to inspire me to do that.
