NTREG Monthly Meeting
Date: Saturday, December 13, 2014.
Time: 10:00 am - 12:00 noon
Location: Franconia Brewery, 495 McKinney Parkway, McKinney, Texas 75071
Hosted By: Franconia Brewery
Franconia Brewery is an extremely energy efficient operation. How efficient? They recycle 100% of their mash (left-over hops after brewing). All brewery waste materials that can be recycled ARE recycled! They operate a state-of-the-art energy efficient building. A large portion of the water used in the brewing process is collected and re-used!
Finally, Franconia Brewery says they don't produce waste or trash that will end up in a landfill! For that reason, they don't have a trash dumpster!
Franconia will give NTREG a private brewery tour on Saturday, December 13. No beer or samples will be served during our tour. Instead, the focus will be the energy conservation efforts of their operation. Please arrive at 10:00 am. The tour starts promptly at 10:15 am.
After the private tour for NTREG attendees, anyone who wants to join Franconia's regular 11:00 am tour is welcome to do so. The regular tour takes two hours, and includes free samples of their product. Regular tour cost is $5 per person.
