The Manual recently included North Coast Brewing Company in a feature article on B Corp certified alcohol brands. A snippet about North Coast Brewing’s sustainably-driven mission from the article is as follows:
Pursuing B-Corps status has always been an organic fit for North Coast Brewing Company. It was officially certified in 2015, but the Golden State operation has focused on social and environmental responsibility throughout its 30-year existence. “From our innovative partnership with Fortunate Farm to our practices in waste reduction and energy efficiency, we have always operated with the understanding that our business success depends on taking care of our people, our community, and the environment,” says brewer CEO Sam Kraynek.
He says the big and little things add up and that philanthropy, too, is an important element of the overarching cause. “From waste management to composting spent grain, there are small changes that breweries can make which create a big impact when done on a large scale,” Kraynek adds. “We hope that our brewery’s commitment to sustainability inspires other breweries to make decisions that help the planet, one pint at a time.”
