OUR BRAND VALUES*
All of the energy used here at our brewery in Longhope is run on solar power, with ground source and air source heat pumps also used to extract naturally-occurring heat from the surrounding environment. This energy isn’t only used to provide hot water, heating and electricity to our brewery buildings and event barn, but is used to provide the large amount of energy we need for our brewing processes. What’s more, as a result of how effectively we run our renewable energy systems, we are actually now a net exporter of energy – something we’re incredibly proud of.
We aim to reduce our carbon footprint by working with more and more local suppliers wherever possible, reducing our food miles as a result. We currently work with hop grower Mark Andrews from Ledbury to source our hops, only 18 miles from our door to his own, and source the meat for our events from Camerons Quality Butchers in Cinderford. We also work with local bakery Forest Bakehouse in Longhope, supplying our beers to them to create a tasty ‘Beer Bread’ which we serve at events, and donate our spent grain to Hillsbrook Farm’s dairy cattle. We also use our own bore hole water.
We regularly support the local community through the events & fundraisers that we put on in our events barn at Hillside Brewery. We also support by giving talks to local groups, invite local schools in for business visits, offer case studies for local universities, offer work experience opportunities and provide donations for raffles.
Packaging & Waste
As well as our dedication to ‘running on green’, we also recycle all of our waste materials, from the glass bottles used for our beers, to the spent hops and grain, which we give to a local farm to feed their cattle with. These cows are then milked, with the milk used to turn into a tasty ‘beer’ ice cream using our 9% Belgian Tripel brew! Which is delicious and tastes of spiced banana & pear drops. Even a wide range of our brewery furniture is made used from recycled pallets from deliveries that we have received.
Inspiring & Educating
We are firm believers in developing the next generation of people coming through as they are the future and will drive the food and drink economy forwards. We regularly work with local universities and schools to offer opportunities, site visits and case studies. Organisations that we work with on an ongoing basis are: University of Gloucester Hartpury University Hereford 6th Form College Dene Magna School
We are always looking for ways to reduce our energy usage and increase our efficiency further.
