Patagonia Thinks They Can Save The World With Beer… And They Might Be Right

Innovations in food production are coming at a pretty swift clip. Call it the rise of the woke consumer. We care more than ever before about where our food and drink comes from and how it’s produced. Scientists, companies, and craftspeople are taking note and working tirelessly to bring us sustainable and innovative versions of our favorite staples and treats.

Now Patagonia Provisions has teamed up with Hopworks Urban Brewery and The Land Institute to push the envelope even further. They’ve put their heads together and took a long look at wheat-fueled beers to make some improvements that can net a positive environmental and agricultural impact while still making a beer people love. The Portland, Oregon (duh) brewers devised a recipe for Long Root Ale. The ale replaces standard wheat with The Land Institute’s Kernza grain.
