Green Beer

Triple Pundit has been investigating what makes the world’s biggest and smallest companies sustainable for over five years. We’re not ashamed to admit that we often end a long day with a cold one. Beer has often been a catalyst in our discussions and networking, not to mention something we enjoy in our time off.

Now, we’re reaching out to brewers large and small to seek out what “sustainability” means to them, and to help tell the story of “green,”
socially conscious brewing.
