Steam Whistle Brewing's Green Initiatives

Bottle Cap Recycling

Bottle Caps

For those eco-conscious Steam Whistle drinkers, we had a question posed to us recently: "What do I do with all the caps I've been collecting in the magnetic cap catcher on my Steam Whistle Retro Opener? Can they be recycled?" You bet they can! If you put your bottle caps back in the case with your Steam Whistle empty bottles we will save those bottle caps from going in the garbage and send them off for recycling with a metal reclaiming centre. Every element of Steam Whistle packaging is re-used or recycled. Help us by sending your empties back today!

Steam Whistle Folk Art

"Every Friday 'Dust My Broom' features a beer review and musical podcast called Friday Night Beer & Blues. Steam Whistle has been reviewed on the blog. The bottle openers that where included in cases of your pilsner plus love of the beer inspired some folk art from me. The 3FG's, the brewer [Liz] that wears a skirt made out of men's ties and Brewmaster are all represented in the picture".
Enthusiastically yours, Larry A.K.A Parrot
