Blessed with fresh country air, pure water and arguably the richest, non-irrigated farmland in the world, Lancaster is still a place where a hand-shake means something, and where genuine craftsmanship, artisan quality and stubborn self-reliance remain part of everyday life. At Lancaster Brewing, an obsessive commitment to superior ingredients is united with equal measures of creativity, skill and experience, to brew consistently great beer. Now, that uncompromising commitment to quality is matched by an equally important commitment to the environment, through Lancaster Brewing’s recent purchase of 100% Renewable Energy to power their brewery and three taprooms.
Through GREENCROWN Energy, Lancaster Brewing’s energy management company and partner in sustainability, the brewery has secured Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) to account for each unit of electricity consumed through the end of 2020. These credits support renewable electricity production in a specific region of generation, and ultimately mean that each Lancaster beer you know and love is now brewed with renewable energy. In addition to reducing the carbon footprint of every beverage to come out of the facility, GREENCROWN has lowered Lancaster Brewing’s electricity and natural gas spend by over $35,000/year through their long-established supplier partnerships.
“Lancaster Brewing Company’s commitment to the customer and the environment alike serves as an excellent example to our brewing and hospitality customers,” says Sal Ritorto, Executive Vice President of GREENCROWN Energy. Pete Keares, President of Lancaster Brewing, comments “Our mission has always centered on seeking ways to improve the quality of our products, while reducing environmental impact and giving back to the community. We’re thrilled to announce our move to 100% renewable energy, and our partnership with GREENCROWN Energy.”
