Blog : Green Alliance & Redhook Host Party for the Planet

By Craig | Mar 18, 2015 | in

Join us as we partner with Redhook Brewery to celebrate Earth Day 2015 on April 22 at the Green Alliance & Redhook Party for the Planet! Throw away those Wednesday, hump-day, blues and come out for a fantastic night honoring that big rock we're all floating on, our planet, Earth.

From 6 - 9 p.m., enjoy free food from Redhook's locally-sourced, all-natural kitchen, amazing raffle prizes, live music from the seacoast's Humble Bee and a cash bar featuring Redhook's sustainable brews on tap. Cover for the party is $5, but if you're a Green Alliance member you get in for free. Make sure you have your Green Alliance member card with you when you come. Not a member? Join today! If you're planning to attend, which you totally should, please RSVP to Sarah at sarah@greenalliance.biz. If you forget to RSVP you can check-in at the door. The party will be upstairs at Redhook's facility located at 1 Redhook Way in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

In addition to the evening's festivities, Redhook will also be part of an Earth Day drop-in clean-up at the Pease Tradeport from 4 - 6:00 p.m. The clean-up will be run by Redhook and other tradeport businesses, but the public is welcome to attend. Please contact Tietjen Hynes at Tietjen.Hynes@craftbrew.com if you'd like to participate. Report to the Redhook facility to receive your clean-up bag and site location. Every time you fill your bag, you will receive one raffle ticket toward the Party for the Planet's raffle, which includes a free case of Redhook beer. That's right, a free case of beer!

A New-England staple since 1996, Redhook Brewery has, for over a decade, helped define the rise of the American microbrew. But while the Portsmouth-based craft brewery – one of three Craft Brewers Alliance facilities, the others are located in Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon – might be known for their famous line of bold and flavorful brews, their growing list of green initiatives and policies are going a long way in setting Redhook even further apart from the competition.

This ever-greening portfolio of practices includes: reusing water heated during the beer’s fermentation in other brewing processes; giving leftover trube, yeast, and spent grains to a Massachusetts cow farm, to be used in feed; and using leftover coffee grounds from one of their Kona brand varieties to help fertilize a community garden located on the premises. The brewery has also instituted a facility-wide recycling program, uses corn-based, compostable plastic cups in the house restaurant, and emphasizes the use of even the most basic food scraps for stock and other products in their near totally scratch kitchen.
