What is BioEnergy Beer?

Ale Industries has pioneered brewing technologies to save energy and reduce waste because we understand that investing in the environment will nurture the communities we care about, allowing them to flourish and grow.

At our Oakland brewery we aim to create green relationships with our friends and neighbors. By relying on BioDiesel Fuel sourced from local businesses we attempt to remove as much carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as we release into it. We use cleaner more sustainable energy because of how & what we use for fuel. To complete the cycle, our network of distributions trucks that deliver our beer run on similar systems as our BioEnergy Brewhouse!

In addition we are the test site for a revolutionary prototype from Porifera Inc., forward osmosis is used to filter wastewater at the brewery so that it can be used for landscaping or equipment washdown. This could be used to potentially treat 300-500 gallons a week and there are plans for this machine to eventually cut down on 90% of the brewery’s water waste.

We embody the spirit of collaboration, bringing new members into the fold of environmentally friendly practices. Giving back to our community is an important part of the process, we contribute to the economic development and growth of Oakland and strive to partner with local-small businesses and nonprofit groups. We will continue to be responsible, to innovate, and carry on crafting an experience that our home can be proud of. In the meantime, come try one of our BioEnergy Beers!
