Beer-powered beer. Alaska brewery using spent grain as fuel

alaskan-beer

Alaskan Brewing Co. is using leftover grain byproducts to power a new steam boiler and dry grain, with an stunning estimated fuel reduction of 50%, saving 1.5 million gallons of oil over ten years and thus creating beer-powered beer.

Grain leftovers from breweries is often shipped to farmers to be used as feed. However there aren’t enough farmers in Alaska so it had to be shipped to the Lower 48, which was expensive, plus the grain needed to be dried first. Now they dry the grain using spent grain and also to create steam.

Not only does this save money and is a wonderful example of recycling, it also makes Alaskan Brewing much less susceptible to problems should there be supply problems or big price increases for oil
