Barrington Brewery Crafts Solar Powered Beer
December 9, 2019

Craft beer enthusiasts might want to check out the new brew from a Great Barrington brewer. Just four ingredients are needed to make a basic beer: malt, hops, yeast, and water. But the crew at Barrington Brewery got creative and added something else: sunlight. Using solar heated water and a solar powered electric system, the owners of the brewery say they have cut their utility bills dramatically—while brewing a tasty variety of ales and lagers. Connecting Point Producer Dave Fraser “taps” into this story to bring us the frothy details.
