Do you think beer is good? If you do, you re not alone. Beer is the most widely consumed alcoholic beverage worldwide, and one of the earliest fermented products humans ever crafted. There s a new trend brewing in the ancient art of beer making " sustainability. Our guest this week on Sea Change Radio is Geoff Larson, co-founder of Alaskan Brewing Company, a craft brewer that is just as committed to environmental stewardship as it is to making a tasty libation.
Geoff and his team are at the cutting edge of what they call beer-powered beer, using innovation to make beer without a drop of energy wasted. He ll tell host Alex Wise about the technology they've developed to reduce and reuse in their brewing process, how they keep up with consumer demands for flavorful and ecologically-conscious beer, and how they try to meet the challenges of keeping their carbon footprint low in the distant climes of the US s northernmost state.
