Final Voting Results

The annual competition to crown Americas favorite solar brewery!

Across the country, breweries are going solar. Whether it’s to reduce electricity bills or demonstrate their commitment to clean energy, many breweries see the benefits of solar and are making the switch. And, solar supporters are big fans of breweries that have made the choice to install solar! Our members are constantly raving about their favorite solar breweries—and their favorite brews from the sun.

But as any true craft beer enthusiast will tell you, not all brews are created equal. So that got us thinking: What is America’s favorite solar brewery?

That’s why Solar United Neighbors started the Brews from the Sun competition to crown America’s favorite craft brewery! The annual competition gives solar supporters and craft beer enthusiasts from across the country the chance to vote for their favorite brewery that has gone solar. The competition reflects our belief that the craft beer industry is an important part of our transition to a clean, local energy system that benefits everyone. Solar and great beer? What could be better!?
