There’s no better time than autumn, when the leaves turn orange and crisp breezes begin blowing, to embrace seasonal libations. This year, cozy up with a drink made in the greenest storehouses.

These wineries and breweries practice sustainability year-round with their LEED-certified facilities. LEED presents not only an opportunity for sustainable production, but also for interaction with the environment and community in which these manufacturers harvest and work.

For example, the New Belgium Brewery in Asheville, North Carolina, works closely with its habitat, capturing rainwater and using it to nourish native plants. The brewery also has an interdepartmental group called “Beer Scouts” who sponsor volunteer events for coworkers to give back to the community. In 2016, New Belgium coworkers logged 4,220 volunteer hours working with local organizations like Habitat for Humanity.
