Kiitos Brewing Plans to be Environmentally Friendly While Producing New Local Craft Beer

With a new water treatment system and environmentally friendly practices Kiitos prepares to join Utah’s craft beer scene.

Andrew Dasenbrock and his head brewer are planning to open Kiitos at their new location in the summer of 2017 and start welcoming patrons to test their craft beer. Dasenbrock has taken numerous precautions to ensure that his new pub is as environmentally friendly as possible.

Construction plans were made so they could install a treatment system to limit water waste. This new system ensures that they are only disposing water waste into the public system that is as clean as it can possibly be.

When it comes to the distribution of their beer, Kiitos is definitely in favor of cans. As an environmentally friendly company, Dasenbrock says cans are, “…better for the brewery, better for the beer, better for the planet, and best of all, better for the consumer. Cans are highly recyclable, and require less energy to transport…”

When Kiitos finally opens their nature-friendly doors, patrons will be able to get their hands on a number of specialty ales and lagers that have been masterfully crafted by the brewmasters. There are also some great surprises coming up in the next couple of months that will be sure to catch the attention of any craft beer enthusiast in Utah.
