A ale called Gale: BrewDog 100 per cent wind powered from July | theenergyst.com

BrewDog will brew its beers from wind power the middle of July.

The company last month outlined plans to invest in three turbines totalling 2.4MW.

The move is part of a raft of initiatives to lower its carbon footprint and environmental impact, including ditching plastic packaging (its four-packs now come in cardboard), setting up an anaerobic digestion project and incentivising people to send back empty cans in batches of 50 in return for a share in the company (in a scheme dubbed ‘cans for equity’).

“Excited to announce that from 13th July all the electricity used to make our BrewDog beers will come directly from wind turbines,” said co-founder James Watt, adding that the company is “on a mission to be the world’s most sustainable drinks company”.

To mark the occasion, he said the firm “will make a beer to celebrate called: ‘Hello, my name is Gale’.”

Announcing the move on LinkedIn, others suggested the brewery had sufficient roof space to produce a sister beer called ‘Sunny’.
