7 Sierria NevadaA fifth of Sierra Nevada brewery’s power comes from the more than 10,700 solar panels it uses. The panels cover the equivalent of three and a half football fields.

All the vegetable oil the company uses is converted into biodiesel.

Visitors to the plant can enjoy the Mills River forest, reforested by Sierra Nevada, and charge their electric cars at the brewer’s free charger.
