7 March , 2012
6:00 pmto8:00 pm
Our next Sustainability Drinks event is on Wednesday 7th March 2012, 6:00pm – 8:00pm, with special guest speaker Dean O’Callaghan.

Dean O’Callaghan is a creative entrepreneur, brewer extraordinaire and founder of The Good Brew Company. Deano (as he is warmly known in the industry) has considered his place in the world, and the place of sustainability in brewing enterprise.

Known to don a deep green suit and kilt instead of a logo covered uniform, he makes, delivers, consults, and sets the Melbourne brew bar pretty high – all in the name of the planet and a clean green brew. All product is delivered on bikes, trikes or solar powered couches, is brewed with a minimised carbon footprint, locally (within 50kms from Brunswick), by breweries with solar preheat and other innovative environmental measures, and to German purity laws (no sugar or additives of any sort). Goodbrews are unfiltered, meaning they contain vitamin B (B1, B2, B6, biotin, nicotinic acid, folinic acid and pantothenic acid) removing a hangover before it arrives!! Oh and lastly, brews are served in reuseable kegs into reusable glasses/bamboo which can be washed, rinsed and chilled on the spot.

Cam Hines from Mountain Goat Brewery speaking at the Sustainable Cities Round Table, 12 August

Posted in SCRT Videos, Sustainable Cities Round Tables by Ferne Edwards on September 2nd, 2008

Cam Hines, co-founder and owner, Mountain Goat Brewery was another of the acclaimed speakers at the recent Sustainable Cities Round Table on Sustainable Entrepreneurship and Innovation, 12 August. Mountain Goat Brewery have gone beyond where other breweries have gone before to consider green innovations in producing top quality beer. As listed on their website under “green goat”, “Microbreweries are typically small industrial operations that craft fantastic beer but consume a lot of power and water and often have significant emissions. We at Goat are hell-bent on doing things smarter by reducing our impact on the environment. Moving to the new building during 2004 gave us a great opportunity to set things up right.”. And how right they are as discussed in Cam’s presentation, “How to Clean a Mountain Goat” below. To find out more about Mountain Goat Brewery visit their site at
