Canal Park Brewery wins favorite solar brewpub award

DULUTH, MN — A Duluth brewery has won a first place award in one of the categories featured in the Brews from the Sun competition.

Canal Park Brewery has won the brewpub category portion of the competition, which is put on by Solar United Neighbors.

44 breweries competed across the three categories, which also included best regional brewery and best microbrewery.

Maui Brewing Company of Hawaii won the regional brewing category, while Mad Mole Brewing of North Carolina took first in the best microbrewery.

“We’re thrilled that so many people voted for us,” said Paul Kaz, Owner of Canal Park Brewing Company. “We’ve been working towards installing solar since we opened in 2012, so just getting the panels up and running was a huge win for us. Winning American’s Favorite Solar Craft Brewpub was icing on the cake. We’re so grateful for the support of our staff, those involved in designing and implementing our system, and of course every one of our customers who voted and continues to support us by stopping in for solar-powered craft beer!”

Canal Park Brewing Company installed a solar 16kW system earlier this year, and also offers biodegradable straws, in addition to composting all of its food waste
