ELS Symposium 2014-3: Panel 2: Sustainable Beer and Wine Production

Panel 2: Sustainable Beer and Wine Production 11:20AM-12:35PM Californians take great pride in both their environmental consciousness and the quality of their brews and wine. As an environmental leader on numerous fronts, it is not surprising that some California breweries and wineries seek to raise the bar on sustainable beer and wine production, from ecological farming practices, to production that increases efficiency and incorporates renewable energy. This panel will explore the significant eco-footprint of producing beer and wine, and the means of reducing this footprint.
