NEW: PSU Students Help Launch Low-Carbon Beer

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

 

Portland State University is helping Migration Brewing launch a beer with a smaller carbon footprint than average. The release will act as a fundraising event for carbon policy for the Oregon Environmental Council (OCE). 

“I’m proud that PSU was able to play such a key role in creating a carbon-conscious beer and shine a light on the steps businesses can take in the realm of climate action,” Fletcher Beaudoin, assistant director of PSU’s Institute for Sustainable Solutions and member of the OEC’s Emerging Leaders Board, said in a media statement. 

The beer, called Little Foot Red Ale, was developed after Portland’s Hatfield Sustainably Resources analyzed Migration Brewing’s production process. Migration then crafted the red ale off the recommendations , with steps including organic ingredients, on-site distribution, and the purchase of purchase of renewable energy certificates to offset remaining production emissions.

PSU students and staff are helping develop a brand, logo, and promotional materials for the beer and its release event. The project gives students the opportunity to take their skills beyond the classroom, according to Chris North, adjunct professor of Graphic Design in PSU’s School of Art + Design,in a media statement. 

Little Foot Red Ale will be released at a January 22nd launch party at Migration’s pub in Portland.
