Beer that’s good for everyone, even those who don’t drink it.

Green Energy

We are committed to respecting the environment, preventing the emission of over 45 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere

In the past few years, beer has been the subject of many studies extolling the virtues of its nutritional qualities and the beneficial effects it has on the human body, if drunk in the right quantities. When we talk about our beers, we can add another advantage to the list: its benefit for the environment.

In 2017 we prevented the emission of over 45 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere, thanks to our decision to use only energy from renewable sources. This policy has improved the environment we live in and guarantees a better future for coming generations. Fossil fuels are burnt to produce an electric kilowatt hour, releasing significant amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere. The production of clean energy prevents these emissions.

The energy of the Dolomites

100% clean energy means using the power nature give us: the force of the water which powers the hydroelectric plants in our Dolomites. 100% Italian energy, from producer to consumer. The table below shows the amount of CO2 prevented in 2017, month by month:

Our eco-sustainable process

At 32 we strongly believe in the importance of eco-compatible policies in the workplace. So we take different measures at different stages in production to reduce waste and optimise processes. Alongside the excellent results achieved in the reduction of emissions, we have further reduced water consumption, a hugely important resource which should be used sparingly.

During the recent periodical visit for ISO 9001 certification, it emerged that in 2017 we reduced water consumption by 13% (compared to 2016), using just 4.5 litres of water to produce one litre of beer. This is an immensely satisfying result for a craft brewery with our production volumes, as it usually takes around 8 litres to produce one litre of beer.

Our virtuous approach to cutting waste is also reflected in our gas consumption which, compared to 2016, fell 9%, thanks to the energy generated during fermentation which is stored as hot water.

32 Via dei birrai, beer that’s good for you, even if you don’t drink it!
