A Bristol-based brewery celebrating 15 years in the trade showed Metro Mayor Dan Norris how they are going green and cutting their energy bills thanks to a grant from the West of England Combined Authority led by the Metro Mayor.
The Metro Mayor toasted craft specialists Moor Beer when he met director Maryann Hawke for a tour of its brewery and tap room. He learned more about the brewing process before attempting, like many politicians before him, to pour the perfect pint.
Prior to his stint behind the bar, Mr Norris found out how the birthday brewers have been able to install solar panels thanks to £15,000 of funding from the Combined Authority, which he leads. As well as cutting their energy usage by a fifth, it is estimated that this will save them over £5000 annually on their energy bills.
Metro Mayor Dan Norris said: “Everyone has their favourite tipple. I’m sure the crisp, hazy products at Moor will be even more refreshing to Bristolians knowing they are being brewed in a greener building.

Moor Beer director Maryann Hawke said: “alongside our low energy lights, canning on-site and local bike deliveries via “Shift” couriers, the solar panels add a considerable boost to our commitment for a greener future. Support local and Drink Moor Beer!”.
