At the Rye River Brewing Company sustainability is at the top of our agenda. It is at the heart of who we are and what we do.

We are truly proud of the unique culture we’ve built, one that’s filled with energy, opportunity and fun.Movie All Is Lost (2013)

We believe in our people, trust in their positive intentions, encourage ideas from everyone and have actively developed a workforce that is diverse in style and background. The Rye River Brewing Company is a place where anyone can, and does, make a difference.

Our key areas of focus include:

Jobs, Education & Community Growth and Spirit:

We ensure that when we need something done at Rye River, we reach out to the local community first to see if we can employ their services or where possible and appropriate hire from the local community.

From Farm to Bottle:

We’ve made it our business to put sustainability at the heart everything we do so that there is a future not only here at the Rye River Brewing Company but also for our community, our country and ultimately the world!

Water:

The breakdown of our water is useage is

* for every 10 litres of water used

* 7 litres is used for cleaning the brewery

* 3 litres of water used in the brewing process

all to produce 1 litre of beer.

We moved to reverse osmosis when moving to Celbridge, this was required due to the water makeup in Celbridge. The process allows us brew with distilled water and build an individual water profile for each specific beer.

Electricity:

We are currently working on an energy efficiency project with our service provider aiming to reduce energy usage and re-distribute redundant heat etc. This is a work in progress.
