Thirsty Planet Brewing Company
Thirsty Planet Brewing Company offers beer you can feel good about drinking. The people of Thirsty Planet are not only passionate about beer, its history and its versatility, but they are also environmentally conscious and generous. The tips they receive from the tasting rooms are donated to different charities each month. They also support the Montain Gorilla Conservation Fund by donating over half the proceeds from their Silverback Pale Ale to the cause. They also do their environmental duty by donating their spent grain to local farmers for feed and recycling all cardboard, paper, and glass products.
In early 2016, the brewery revealed plans to move to a new brewing facility in South Austin to triple its current output. Thirsty Planet plans to lure Austinites to its South Congress headquarters with a bar-like atmosphere and expanded taproom hours.
