South Florida is home to America’s largest wetland and one of its most beloved ecological treasures, the Everglades. This vast River of Grass is central to our regional identity, foundational to our economic engines, and vital to a harmonious and balanced ecosystem teeming with wildlife. Simply put, our prosperity depends on a healthy and vibrant Everglades ecosystem.
South Florida is also home to a burgeoning craft beer industry. Florida’s craft breweries have proliferated in the last few years, adding $3.6 billion to the state’s economy, creating jobs, providing economic growth, and uniting communities around locally-made brews.
Both rely on a dependable and abundant source of clean water to thrive.
Meet the Everglades Brewers Council.
These South Florida breweries have a serious love for good beer and a serious commitment to protecting our natural resources.
The Everglades provide fresh drinking water to nearly eight million Floridians. Our brewers know that there is no good beer without clean water, and in South Florida, clean water starts with a healthy Everglades ecosystem. That’s why the members of the Everglades Brewers Council are committed to collaborating with Audubon Florida to champion policies that protect South Florida’s water, restore the Everglades, and strengthen our regional resilience.
