why
Impact Brewing

7 Bridges Brewing Co. is committed to IMPACT BREWING and ZERO WASTE.

The term ‘IMPACT BREWING’ was coined by our founder Uncle Stanley to describe our mission to leverage the power of craft beer to do good for the community and our local environment.

 

Zero waste means that no water or brewing by-product leaves our brewery as waste. We achieve this by reducing the amount of water used in the brewing process, designing a biological wastewater recycling system and capturing spent grain, yeast and hops for agricultural and value-added products. Have you tried our spent grain pizza or beer soap?

 

Imagine a world where all businesses looked hard at their waste and impact on the planet… and simply did something about it. It’s not just what we brew, it’s what we do!

 

Our IMPACT mission includes some cool activities:

Beach Clean-Ups

As a beachside town brewery, we aim to deliver positive IMPACT in our community in any way we can. We have organized many beach clean-ups, and sponsored others, with volunteers being rewarded with an ice cold beer for their efforts.  We trade ocean plastic for beer.

Beer United

Founded by 7 Bridges, BEER UNITED demonstrated the power of craft beer to bring together the community for a charitable purpose. The Annual festival helps to celebrate breweries from all over Vietnam, whilst also raising money for causes including DAVA (The Da Nang Association for Victims of Agent Orange).

IMPACT Brews 

We support specific causes, especially wildlife conservation, through limited edition targeted beers. A percentage of each glass sold is donated to the chosen local charitable cause. That’s right; you drink one of our IMPACT Brews and you’re also helping to better the community. No need to feel guilty about having an extra beer or two!

Da Nang Marathon

As Environmental Partners for the Da Nang Marathon in both 2018 and 2019, we enlisted a group of volunteers to help collect and recycle over 440kg of waste from the 20KM race track. Our team of volunteers collected and recycled water bottles, caps, gel sachets and more. Focusing on the forgotten items and ‘stupid plastic’ that often gets missed in recycling. You can leave a mark without leaving any trash.

Vietnam Trail Series

We proudly sponsor the Vietnam Trail Series, high-intensity adventure races throughout the year. We partner with VTS because they are an eco-forward organization.  In their races, participants found to be littering are immediately disqualified. They maintain a high standard of sustainability, and we support their endeavors by supplying 7 Bridges Recovery Radler to the runners after the race.  We love these races.

Namduro 

Namduro is bi-yearly endurance, off-road motorbike adventure through the North of Vietnam. 7 Bridges not only sponsors the event, but challenges participants to collect as much trash from the roadside as possible. We ride.  We get muddy.  We set up pop-up taprooms in extreme locations.  The only thing we leave behind are tire tracks.
