​Webinar Summary

Water makes up over 90% of beer, yet the range of how much water we use per batch varies drastically.  With an average of 7 gallons of water used per 1 gallon of beer produced, shows how much waste we have in breweries.  Not only are we paying for this on the front end, purchasing from your water utility, but we are also paying it with our wastewater treatment costs.  

Each brewery is different, so a key first step is to understand where you use water and where the opportunities to reduce usage exist.  With a list of ideas, each attendee will be given a framework to systematically prioritize the ideas that work best for them.

We will walk through an incredible system that will focus on 2-3 water-saving ideas at your facility and ensure proper change management strategies are used to reduce risks associated with change.

Attendees will:​

Attendees will be able to implement a systematic approach to driving down their water usage by 25%!  This system will enable the attendees to continually reevaluate their usage and prioritize new ideas.
