Green Job Training in Water
Water conservation + craft brewing + cheese + dinner
October 26, 2009
Local "craft" businesses such as breweries and specialty cheese making and local restaurants can collaborate on local celebrations of "local business". When combined around a water conservation theme, or an energy conservation theme...you can educate while providing valuable marketing opportunities for local businesses.
SPLASH!, a celebration of
conservation and craft brewing, presents craft beer and
cheese tastings and dinner catered by Bartolotta's at the
Discovery World Museum, Pier Wisconsin, Milwaukee, WI, on
Monday, October 26, 5-8 PM.
The special guest speaker is Jake Leinenkugel, president of the Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co., Chippewa Falls, WI, the Platinum sponsor of the Great Lakes Craft Brewers & Water Conservation Conference, with in-kind support from Beer Capitol Distributing, Inc.
SPLASH! is the public portion of the Great Lakes Craft Brewers & Water Conservation Conference, which brings together water policymakers in the Great Lakes and experts in water-saving systems from Bridgeport Brewing Co. (Jeff Edgerton), New Glarus Brewing Co. (Dan Carey), Odell Brewing Co. (Doug Odell) and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. (Fred Strachan). Guests at SPLASH! will be able to meet and mingle with the craft brewers attending the conference.
Artisan cheesemakers that will be present at the event include Crave Bros. Cheese Company of Waterloo, WI; Saxon Farmstead Creamery of Cleveland, WI; and the Cedar Grove Cheese Company, with a display about the biodynamic "Living Machine" wastewater treatment developed by cheesemaker Bob Wills.
Several conservation groups, such as Clean Wisconsin, Gathering Waters Conservancy, Milwaukee Riverkeepers, Shedd Aquarium's Great Lakes Conservation program Listen to Your Lakes, and the National Wildlife Federation, will showcase conservation tips and tools. The Shedd Aquarium will give away free shower timers made of 100% recycled plastic. This tool helps you shorten your morning ablutions to five minutes or fewer, to save water at home.
