A newly opened Guinness brewhouse has become the first major brewhouse in the world to receive LEED Platinum certification. This isn't just any old Guinness brewhouse but the largest in the world, capable of producing 300,000 pints per two-hour brew.

The sustainability features of this Guinness brewhouse include a special energy recovery system and a hybrid refrigeration system that runs at zero degrees Celsius instead of -4 degrees. Meanwhile, the building's orientation has been optimized and solar shading and high-performance installation have been installed. Automatic high-efficiency lighting further contributes towards energy efficiency.

Guinness is a beer brand that has withstood the test of time and has continued to stay relevant and appealing. By going green, Guinness is ensuring that it continues to move forwards with the times.
