A Dartmouth graduate, Tietjen Hynes helps to lead Redhook Brewery’s Portsmouth facility on a sustainable path to better business growth, profitability, operations, food and of course, great beer. The 30 year-old Water Quality Engineer enjoys working with her colleagues to come up with innovative ways to make Redhook Brewery a greener business.

Redhook opened their Portsmouth brewing facility and restaurant in 1996 in order to provide the east coast with fresh, high quality beer. Since then, Redhook has made great strides towards greener brewing, such as composting spent hops and reclaiming heat at the end of the brewing process to use towards brewing the next batch. Tietjen has helped Redhook cut down on their electric usage by installing motion sensors in the bathrooms and storerooms, and through the use of low energy LEDs and CFL light bulbs. Recently, the company began offsetting every kilowatt of energy used with wind power credits.
