Cheers to sustainable farming, say Patagonia Provisions and Dogfish Head
Food Dive recently covered the launch Kernza Pils by Patagonia Provisions, the food and drink arm of the outdoor equipment company, and Dogfish Head, the Delaware-based craft brewery. The German-style pilsner beer is made with Kernza, the grain crop cousin of wheat that draws down carbon in the atmosphere and sequesters it in the ground. Kernza was developed as a new perennial grain that could sequester carbon and protect the soil through its long roots. The grain is said to have a distinctive nutty taste.
