A Sustainable Brewpub in the New SUB ?!
Posted March 11th, 2011 - 10:28 pm by from Montreal, Canada (Permalink)
Greetings UBC Beer Lovers !

Did you know that the UBC student council is considering the idea of putting a brewpub in the new Student Union Building? A brewpub is a pub where they make and serve the beer on site. The beer is fresher and the operation is more sustainable since you don't have to package and transport the final product. There is interest in incorporating other sustainable practices, which may include using organic ingredients, recycling rainwater for brewing, re-using brewery waste water, growing hops at the UBC Farm, using spent brewing grains to make bread or as a substrate for growing mushrooms... the possibilities are endless !!

The idea of a UBC Campus Brewpub is currently in the consultation phase. I encourage you all to support this idea by completing this online survey (it only takes 5 minutes). If you really like the idea, send the link to your friends or post it on your Facebook page!
