NBIS ‘Eco-Hour’ @ Elliott Bay Brewhouse & Pub in Burien

Join the Network for Business Innovation and Sustainability (NBIS) at Elliott Bay Brewing Company on Thursday, September 29th for a real treat! You’ve had their beer at our Eco-Hours now join us at the Brewhouse & Pub in Burien for our next eco-hour as we celebrate Elliott Bay Brewing Company’s accomplishments in sustainability and organic brewing. With the most certified organic beers in Washington State, you won’t want to miss this one!

Elliott Bay Brewing Co. takes a very progressive approach to practicing sustainability. They have proactively made choices to reduce and recycle, and their kitchens support their goals by: purchasing free-range, all-natural beef and chicken; by supporting businesses employing sustainable fishing; and by buying local additive- and preservative-free bread baked with spent grain from our brewing process. Their composting efforts include the use of 100% compostable paper products, to-go utensils, and packaging products.

In 2004 they purchased wind power credits and retrofitted all of their lighting with high efficiency products. In 2006 they pushed to move their brewpub and the West Seattle Junction to 100% compostability and recyclability, reducing garbage pick-up from 8 yards a week to only two yards per week. Their waste oil is even picked up by a local biodiesel compa- ny and recycled into bio fuel, which comes in handy for their diesel-powered company truck.

In 2008, the Elliott Bay Brewhouse & Pub in Burien became the first Certified Organic brewery in King County. A year later, the West Seattle Brewpub followed suit and became fully certified. Their company culture promotes longevity of service and a healthy life-work balance for their crew members.

Eco-Hour is still free to NBIS members and $15 for non-members. R.S.V.P. at: http://eco-hour-elliott-bay. eventbrite.com
