Little Harpeth Brewing
In pre-Prohibition Middle Tennessee, the drinking culture was heavily influenced by traditional German lagers. At Little Harpeth Brewing, founder Michael Kwas and head brewer Steve Scoville seek to stay true to this history while also carving out their own place in the future of brewing.
In service of that second goal, they pay great attention to their carbon footprint. In addition to building its boiler room and offices with 80% reused and recycled materials, Little Harpeth also works to make its brewing process as eco-friendly as possible. Scoville has extensively researched environmentally conscious European practices, and it shows. He uses a high-efficiency steam boiler, runs the equipment at a higher voltage for lower electrical consumption, and avoids wasting water or purchasing CO2 for carbonation. Nearly all of the malts come from Rahr Malting, which doesn't use fossil fuels for production.
Here's a quick look at some of Little Harpeth's sustainably made beers:
Chicken Scratch American Pilsner: this traditional American pilsner is light and crisp, made with locally grown corn and native hops that give it a hint of sweetness and floral hop aromas (5.5% ABV)
Stax Black Lager: made with a blend of dark roast malts and light American-base malts, this black beer is deceptively light, clean, and refreshing (5.3% ABV)
High Water Dunkel Lager: inspired by Munich's traditional brown beers, this brew balances complex malts with a spicy, bitter taste and aroma (5.1% ABV)
Prost! Oktoberfest: a Nashville take on the traditional German, this seasonal beer kicks off the Oktoberfest season with a complex, malty sweetness and a hint of German noble hop aroma (5.4% ABV)
