Rhinegeist is a brewery located in the historic Over-the-Rhine Brewery District that believes in the power of beer to bring great people together, foment fantastic ideas, and build a community that values craft beer and one another. They aim to brew beers where the "first sip calls for the third."
Why They're Green
As Rhinegiest continues to grow, their goal is to build off the work of peers, eliminating and diverting waste wherever possible while keeping a local focus. In addition to utilizing commingled recycling, Rhinegeist diverts several waste streams including but not limited to spent grain, plastic grain bags, aluminum cans, scrap metal, cardboard, LDPE film, Paktechs (plastic 4 and 6-pack can holders), and spent hops/yeast.
Rhinegeist tracks their waste, energy, and water usage to evaluate new sustainable opportunities. They also perform energy and waste audits to identify where they can improve their performance and push the boundaries of sustainability.
