2019 Brews from the Sun Competitor

Brewery Vivant

Our story

Our brewery is located in a historic former funeral chapel and when we renovated the space to fit our Pub and Brewery, we wanted to both look to the future with LEED principles, but also preserve the historic feel of the property. In 2016, our the historical committee approved the installation of 192 solar panels to adorn the roofs of our buildings, despite perhaps not looking entirely historic. Still, they are visible from the street, and as one approaches the Pub, we hope the sight of these blue panels sparks conversation and inspires engagement. It is possible to take steps towards renewable energy! How can you do it in your home, community, lifestyle?
