Video Interview: Brooklyn Brewery COO, Eric Ottaway

Breweries play a large role in the communities where they are located, and New York’s Brooklyn Brewery shows that being a good neighbor has big payoffs.

Eight years ago, wanting to help keep a power plant out of their neighborhood, Brooklyn Brewery made the commitment to operate using 100% wind-power. This generated not only a lot of electricity but made a bold statement to their community. They serve as the first company in NYC to be fully wind-powered.
