Efficiency in brewing
Griffin Claw Brewing Company, 575 S. Eton Street, in Birmingham’s Rail District, has found a way to recycle in a new and unique way – by capturing carbon dioxide they lose during brewing and repurposing it in their beer. It’s a cutting edge science in the world of brewing, where the yeast in brewing spews off carbon dioxide as a byproduct during fermentation. However, brewers continue to need carbon dioxide to give carbonization to beer, to create the fizz when drinkers ‘pop’ the can. Griffin Claw said the technology was created in Austin, Texas, by Earthly Labs, allowing them to recapture the carbon dioxide before it is released into the air for fermentation. Brewers are then able to carbonate Griffin Claw beer. Brewers at Griffin Claw are looking to release a special brew using their new technique, with a special name, in 2021.
