The Clean Water Pledge

You can't make great beer without clean water. That's why our brewery is proud to join the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and its more than one million supporters to stand up for clean water and the Clean Water Act.

Clean water is essential to more than great-tasting beer - it's critical for public health and the health of a wide range of industries. Responsible safeguards protect our product from upstream pollution and help us protect our downstream neighbors.

These breweries have taken the Clean Water Pledge and are partnering with NRDC to defend the Clean Water Act:
