EXPERIENCE

Last year, the East End Brewing Company celebrated ten years of distributing its local brews to bars and restaurants in Western PA. Now you get the chance to witness the carefully honed brewing process up close and personal, from start to finish. Earn some GBCI CEUs while your at it, and see for yourself how the East End Brewing Company runs a nearly zero-waste operation, saves energy by capturing heat from the exothermic fermentation process, and reduces water use by reclaiming hot and cold water used in the brewing process. Join your fellow GBA members on a guided tour of the facilities and hear the history of a small company that proudly calls Pittsburgh home. With a stellar lineup of new beers coming out in 2015, you may want to come thirsty!

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. Understand how cooling tanks reclaim water used in the brewing process.
  2. Explain how a refrigeration system uses heat from the exothermic fermentation process to heat the production area.
  3. Understand how a recently overhauled electric system saves energy through three phase power.
  4. Explain how a diligent recycling and reuse policy for inbound packaging materials reduces landfill waste.
