EARTH CONSCIOUS BREWING
crafting a climate for change.
We are crafting a climate for change at Gloucester Brewery.
When it comes to our carbon footprint, less is definitely more, and we’ve made a pledge to do all we can to reduce our impact on the environment.
It’s all about 100% taste with zero carbon footprint. We are committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2022 and that means making smart use of the Earth’s resources and expecting the highest ethical standards throughout our company and supply chain.
Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do from the planet-friendly beers we create and the vehicles we drive, to the environmental projects we support and even the way you can carry our six-packs.
Our journey as an Earth-conscious brewing company has only just begun and we want people to share in our adventure creating a loyal community who return time and again not just because of our passion for brewing but our desire to better the world we live in.
As part of our commitment to Earth-conscious brewing we are proud to be working with a number of partners:

Providing the best tasting craft beer is at the heart of the core values on which our company is founded. We brew in a perfectly natural way, using the purest ingredients, responsibly and mindfully holding ourselves accountable for our ethical and environmental standards.
44% of all bread produced in the UK is thrown away. We want to do our part to reduce this.
Bread is made from grains such as barley, wheat and rye, the same raw materials that are used to make beer. Making beer with bread dates back 4,000 years. We collect surplus bread from The Authentic Bread Company in Newent and incorporate this into the brewing process. It is mashed down into the mix and replaces some of the malted barley we traditionally use in brewing.
By using bread that would have otherwise been wasted, we are helping to reduce carbon emissions from the energy-intensive brewing process. This small change can replace upto a third of the malted barley and can have a huge impact on reducing waste.
By drinking mindfully, you are investing in the long-term health of the planet, now and for the future.
