On Tuesday, April 17, members of Vermont's Green Brewery Cohort gathered at Magic Hat Brewing's South Burlington Artifactory to discuss recent efforts to green up their brewing operations. The newly formed group of Vermont breweries — including Magic Hat, Mill River Brewing, Hermit Thrush Brewery, 14th Star Brewing, Whetstone Station Restaurant and Brewery, and Northshire Brewery, among others — is working in collaboration with the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation and Efficiency Vermont to decrease their carbon footprints by at least 5 percent by 2020.
