Getting Tilth-y about Sustainability in the Beer Industry
Posted on November 23, 2016
Our organic certifier, Oregon Tilth, was interested in ways that we expand our definition of sustainability by using hops from Salmon-Safe certified farmers. Salmon-Safe Organic is a joint venture between Oregon Tilth and Salmon-Safe, a nonprofit organization working to restore watersheds for salmon to spawn and thrive. Oregon Tilth provides fast track Salmon-Safe certification to organic farmers and handlers that further protect biodiversity and aquatic habitat while helping to redefine the practice of ecologically sustainable agriculture.
The above episode of Getting Tilth-y features Christian Ettinger as he discusses how elevating each other to improve sustainability is critical for shared success. Christian discusses the importance of water in our brewery and how Salmon-Safe helps us support farmers that try to protect our watersheds and landscapes.
