Beer, taking a stand on climate change.

Craft beer is really taking on social issues as of late! While Flying Dog was taking on Freedom of Speech with it's recent court ruling over Raging Bitch, it seems some other craft beer breweries were joining the call to action for climate change.

That's right, the official stance of TDB is that climate change is real, you don't have to agree, you can just fuck off.

Last night twenty-four breweries signed the Brewery Climate Declaration and are ready to take action. They see the impact that climate change has on the industry, the warmer temps, droughts making clean water hard to access and major weather events are creating problems for hops, the price of which has increased over 250% in the last decade!

Join in by signing the declaration!

Here's the full list of breweries that signed:
  • Aeronaut Brewing Company (MA)
  • The Alchemist (VT)
  • Allagash Brewing Company (ME)
  • Aspen Brewing Company (CO)
  • Brewery Vivant (MI)
  • Buoy Beer Company (OR)
  • Chuckanut Brewery and Kitchen (WA)
  • Deschutes Brewery (OR)
  • Fort George Brewery and Public House (OR)
  • Fremont Brewing Company (WA)
  • Georgetown Brewing Co. (WA)
  • Guinness (Ireland)
  • Hopworks Urban Brewery (OR)
  • Kona Brewing Company (HI)
  • New Belgium Brewing (CO)
  • Ninkasi Brewing Company (OR)
  • Odell Brewing (CO)
  • Redhook Brewery (WA, NH)
  • Rockford Brewing Company (MI)
  • Smuttynose Brewing Company (NH)
  • Snake River Brewing Co. (WY)
  • Standing Stone Brewing Co. (OR)
  • Wet Dog CafĂ© & Brewery (OR)
  • Widmer Brothers Brewing (OR)

I'd really love to see some of our local craft beer breweries take a stand!
