Change is in the air
We’ve just launched a landmark new campaign to announce that Budweiser is now brewed with renewable electricity. As the world’s biggest brewer, we believe it is our duty to make a difference. By producing the beer you love with renewable electricity, we are securing a brighter future for all of us, one kilowatt at a time.
Since January 2021, every single can, bottle, and keg of Budweiser imported into ROI is now brewed with electricity from solar and wind sources. Budweiser Brewing Group generates enough renewable electricity to power the brewing operations of not only Budweiser but also Bud Light, Stella Artois, Corona, and Becks.
Discover our colossal renewable infrastructure
With its very own wind turbine at Magor brewery, South Wales, and two dedicated solar farms, Budweiser is proudly committed to investing in sustainable energy infrastructure. Installed in December 2020, the towering wind turbine blades tips reach a height of 150 metres and sweep an area equivalent to two Wembley football pitches. Alongside our wind turbine, Budweiser has signed a 15-year deal with NextEnergy Solar Fund to use electricity generated by two solar farms.
The Budweiser Clydesdales, themselves a potent symbol of renewable power, are back on our screens. Filmed at the Budweiser Thunder Ranch Wind Farm in Oklahoma, and surrounded by Budweiser’s own wind turbines, the horses can be seen gracefully going about their business as Bob Dylan performs “Blowin’ in the Wind”. Well, if you’re going to pick a song to accompany the world’s most iconic horses, you might as well pick one of the world’s most iconic songs.
Download our '100% renewable' logo
All bottles and cans of Budweiser now proudly bear a new Brewed with 100% Renewable Electricity logo - the first of its kind and you can download it here. We’re making these logos publicly available in the hope that other companies join us, because it’s only when we come together that we can truly build a brighter future for our planet.
