Blue Point Brewing Company

Long Island’s original craft brewery, Blue Point Brewing Co., teamed up with ForeFront Power to develop a 217 kW DC solar array on the roof of the brewery’s 54,000 sq. foot facility in Patchogue, NY. The solar project will generate 285,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity annually, the equivalent of 248 acres of U.S. forestry conserved. The Blue Point solar energy portfolio was completed through a partnership between Anheuser-Busch InBev and ForeFront Power to develop solar energy systems at more than half of the breweries in the Brewers Collective, the craft business unit of Anheuser-Busch.

Blue Point was founded in 1998 in Patchogue, N.Y. More than 20 years later, with a portfolio of close to 30 beer and beyond beer brands, Blue Point has grown to be one of the largest breweries in New York State, with a footprint up and down the entire East Coast.

“Blue Point is surrounded by water and has always focused our sustainability efforts on protecting our waterways,” said Nick Rosenberg, Blue Point’s environmental safety manager. “Becoming a solar brewery was the logical next step to fight climate change and lower our utility bills at the same time. We are thankful for ForeFront Power’s expert guidance through every phase of the project, from permitting, to installation, to construction and energization.”

The Blue Point solar project is part of a company-wide commitment from Anheuser-Busch to purchase 100% of its electricity from renewable sources – a goal it achieved four years early. Through partnerships with leading renewable energy providers like ForeFront Power, all Anheuser-Busch Brewers Collective craft partner brewery and cidery locations now brew with 100% renewable electricity from wind and solar power.*

*Electricity is one type of energy Anheuser-Busch uses to brew.
