The Earth to Beer Initiative: Beer That’s Better for the Planet

Earth To Beer is a national movement with a goal for participating breweries to create a packaged beer that’s better for the planet. The initiative seeks to affect change upstream of breweries by asking them to intentionally source environmentally responsible ingredients for their beer, as well as affecting downstream impact by donating a portion of proceeds to a local environmentally-focused nonprofit. Participating breweries will begin releasing beers starting on April 1st and continue through Earth Day on April 22nd.

Prior to founding Earth To Beer, Eric Steen has had an ongoing history of bringing beer, conservation, and environmentalism together, with projects such as Cheers to the Land, The Oregon I Am, and Beers Made By Walking, a movement that invites brewers to make beer using local ingredients found or inspired by nature hikes and urban walks.
