At Wicked Weed, we understand that brewing great beer requires the use of natural resources, so we’re taking deliberate sustainability steps to reduce our usage. We strive to go above and beyond just environmental compliance, with an effort to continuously reduce or eliminate all adverse impacts to the environment. Our pursuit of the perfect pint will always come with a focus on protecting our environment.
Wicked Weed's Sustainability Committee, the Green Freaks, meet monthly to review sustainability data such as water usage and waste diversion rates and to discuss ways to further improve our sustainability efforts.
Our Internal Environmental Observation and Notification reporting system encourages all employees to report issues such as water leaks or innovative ideas, to further reduce our environmental impact.
Beers that Build
Through our philanthropic wing of the company, Beers That Build works with core partnerships focusing on PEOPLE, the ENVIRONMENT, and the ARTS by investing in our local economy and supporting our fellow neighbors.
Keep America Beautiful Grant
In collaboration with Keep America Beautiful®, we’re proud to be part of a series of community restoration and clean-up initiatives being led by craft breweries across the country. Wicked Weed will kick off the collaboration this May 2021 in partnership with Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy to plant 5000 Red Spruce-Frasier Fir seedlings in the Roan Highlands, connecting habitat “islands” to allow rare species to move back and forth, and help to shade and protect two high elevation brook trout streams.
