Video Interview: Sierra Nevada’s Terence Sullivan

Veterans to the craft beer scene, Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. serve as an inspiration. Sierra Nevada takes its commitment to the environment seriously, reducing reusing and recycling throughout the brewing process. For instance, the brewery recovers and recycles 95% of all CO2 produced during fermentation and then reuses it.

The brewery, located in Chico, CA, boasts an impressive solar array which produces the majority of its electricity and grows a certain amount of its barley and hops which are then used in its Estate Homegrown Ale.

Jenn Coyle shares a beer with Terence Sullivan to discuss sustainability and what he perceives as the largest future challenge breweries face:
