We brew by a simple philosophy: let’s do our part for the environment and run our business responsibly while giving back to our local Denver community. Whether it is donating our time, our beer, or working to brew with greener initiatives, here at Great Divide Brewing Co. we are passionate about our environmental and social responsibility.

Some of our environmental initiatives include: donating our spent grain to a local cattle farm, using recycled 12 oz. bottles from a Colorado plant, recycling all of our cardboard and glass, and capturing hot water created during the wort cooling process for future use. Similarly, our 6-pack carriers are 100% recycled paperboard and our outer boxes are 50% post consumer recycled material. Additionally, all of our employees are provided with eco-passes and reusable Klean Kanteens to help reduce our individual footprints.

In 2016, a group of Great Divide employees came together to create the Great Divide Green Team. As we expanded and opened a brand new facility, we saw an opportunity to make changes throughout the brewery to implement greener practices on every level.
