Proceeds from this beer directly fund our ongoing initiatives in the areas o wastewater diversion, energy conservation, recycling, and creating closed production loops. Eos- named for the greek goddess of the dawn- is the second beer in the Sun-Grant series, and is an easy drinking Session Ale brewed with Fossil-Free malt, local malt, and Ohio hops.

FOSSIL FREE HONEY BLONDE
We wanted to brew a beer that reflects our desire to be more sustainable, and so we turned to the sun for inspiration. Ra, named after the ancient Egyptian solar deity, is a Fossil Free Honey Blonde Ale. Using Rahr Malts’ Fossil Free Malts (malted using the world’s second ever biomass-powered suspension fired boiler), amber honey from Stratford Ecological Center’s apiary in Delaware, OH, and Ohio-grown Cascade Hops from Ohio Hops in Castalia, OH, Ra is not only a refreshing summer blonde ale, but it’s also a direct fundraiser for our ongoing and future sustainability initiatives.
For every pint pour and six-pack sold, $2 will go towards our internal Sun-Grant Fund which we’ll use to finance equipment upgrades, building improvements, and anything else that will continue to reduce our environmental impact.
