Make plans to enjoy the fruits of the Oregon Environmental Council Emerging Leaders Board bike-crushing labor during Portland Beer Week!

3rd Annual Low-Carbon Beer Challenge

Emerging Leaders Board – Oregon Environmental Council

Bike Crush Saison Release Party
Thursday, June 15
5 – 8 p.m.
Baerlic Brewing Company, 2235 SE 11th Ave., Portland, OR

What makes a beer low-carbon? Baerlic Brewing took special care to reduce carbon emissions and climate impacts of the brewing process by crushing malt with a bike-powered mill, using energy-efficient transportation, buying local ingredients, and using only natural temperatures. Their dedication to reducing environmental impacts goes beyond carbon. By purchasing Salmon-safe ingredients, they are helping keep harmful fertilizers and pesticides out of our rivers and lakes, and ultimately out of our drinking water and beer.

ABOUT THE PARTNERSHIP:

Bike Crush Saison is a collaboration between Baerlic Brewing Company and the Emerging Leaders Board of the Oregon Environmental Council with help from our friends at Mainstem Malt, Crosby Hop Farm, Bee Local, Imperial Yeast, See/Saw and BUNK Sandwiches.  This collaboration focuses on reducing the energy intensity in beer making, taking advantage of regional and Salmon-Safe ingredients, and celebrating community, diversity and protecting the environment one pint at a time!

The Emerging Leaders Board is an Under-40 advisory board to the Oregon Environmental Council (OEC). The board is made up of entrepreneurs, strategists, community leaders and visionaries who work to support the mission of OEC to advance innovative, collaborative and just solutions to Oregon’s environmental challenges for today and future generations.

Since 2015, the Emerging Leaders Board Low Carbon Beer Challenge has tasked local breweries to design and brew a beer with as little carbon footprint as possible. Past partners included Migration Brewing Company and Hopworks Urban Brewery. Proceeds from Bike Crush Saison will benefit OEC’s work to further promote clean water and Salmon-Safe ingredients.
