A lot of breweries talk about sustainability and environmental practices, but few are as committed as Florida’s First Magnitude. On this episode of Drink Beer, Think Beer it’s a conversation with Christine and John Denny, the founders of the brewery.

Located in Gainesville, Florida it is the Southeast’s first carbon-neutral brewery through a partnership with We Are Neutral, and they have donated a lot of money to and encourage research into the Florida Springs Institute. 

In the brewhouse they are working to reduce waste and to find ways to be more efficient. There are charitable works they brewery touts and they are striving to remain a relevent community hub. 

As for the beers, they are pretty darn good, including one that I enjoyed during the show: Drift, a session brown ale. What’s a session brown? Tune in.
