We are excited to welcome Exile Brewing Company, out of Des Moines, IA, to the ranks of the Iowa Green Brewery Certification. This month, Exile earned a certification for their silver level achievement.

Exile Brewing worked their way to a silver certification by implementing some unique practices in their workplace. Practices they have implemented are standard operating procedures for all processes; recycling fats, oils and grease, and using ionized air for bottle rinsing instead of water.  Another impressive program that Exile participates in is the adopt-a-highway program. Exile has “adopted” a major section of Interstate 235 through downtown Des Moines and several times a year invites staff and patrons to clean up litter along that stretch.

“Exile Brewing is doing so many sustainability-minded things at a very high level. Not only do they make a great product, but the impact they have on the Des Moines metro area as well as the entire craft beer community in Iowa is immeasurable,” says Joe Bolick, manager of Iowa Green Brewery Certification.Exile Brewing Co.

Congratulations to the team at Exile and welcome to the Iowa Green Brewery Certification program!
