Throughout the month of July, the Bellingham Energy Prize (BEP) will be celebrating Independents Month with local Bellingham breweries. Kilowatt Kitty will be raising a glass to Stones Throw, Boundary Bay, Aslan, and Kulshan Brewing Co., and toasting to all of the impressive work they do at each brewery to empower our community and save energy! 

Independents Month celebrates locally owned businesses during the month of July, and the Bellingham Energy Prize has received tremendous support from independent businesses throughout Whatcom County. A total of 51 local businesses have come together to promote and participate! Many have gone above and beyond; including the Community Food Co-op, Sanitary Services, Barron Heating…and many of our local breweries. The breweries in our region continue to prove, time and again, how important they are to our community wellbeing — pitching in and supporting local causes, and many other businesses and organizations when they need it most!

They also happen to be experts in energy savings. Stones Throw recovers heat from brewing and refrigeration to heat the tap room and pre-heat water for the next brew, Boundary has retrofitted all of their lighting to LED lights, Aslan has invested in renewable energy and offsets 100% of its impacts with wind power, and Kulshan recycles chilling water from the brewing process which substantially reduced their water usage and how much has to be heated in the first place. These are just a few of the things each brewer does to save energy, the BEP invites you to attend the happy hours to learn more!

So, come and celebrate Independents month with local breweries and the Bellingham Energy Prize! Get happy with Kilowatt Kitty at four happy hours scheduled throughout July. Be the first to learn about special edition beers brewed just for the BEP, take your picture with Kilowatt Kitty, win prizes, and come support your independent brewers. The series will begin with a big kickoff at Stones Throw on Tuesday, July 12 from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., Kilowatt Kitty says you should mark your calendar right meow!
