Mudshark Brewery already produces some of the best craft beers in the state, but it’s their continuing push towards a green brewery that is truly remarkable.
Solar energy is one of Arizona’s most prevalent natural resources, and Mudshark utilizes the power of the sun to help brew delicious hand crafted beers. Most of the daily brewing operations are powered directly from solar energy. Along with solar, Mudshark has taken other steps towards becoming a green brewery by donating spent grain to local farmers, switching from propane to natural gas, and instituting a water conservation plan which will take action in the upcoming year.
Mudshark is part of a craft brewing revolution that recognizes its ability to produce high quality products while being conscious about their effects on the environment. As more and more craft breweries begin to pop up across the country, it is evident that a unified push towards conservation and awareness is necessary.
Going green is great and all, but we all know that beer is the lifeblood of any brewery, and on that account Mudshark doesn’t disappoint. The beers coming out of the Lake Havasu City-based brewery are exceptional and diverse. No more are the days where boring beers and domestics dominate the market; Mudshark brewers concoct beers spanning styles, tastes, and preferences proving that there is a beer for everyone. Hop heads, malt maniacs, and anyone in between can find something from the local brewery that will appeal to their taste.
Next time you find yourself reaching for another boring beer, remember there is a revolution taking place. Rise up, and do your part in supporting Arizona craft beer. Ask questions. Get involved. Only you can help put Arizona on the map as the great beer destination we know it can be. The future of beer is now, and Mudshark plans on sticking around.
