Spent grain, used in the beer making process, is then given to Roga Farm, a dairy farm in Melrose, New Brunswick and the cows are fed with it.

All non-Bagtown product comes from New Brunswick.


There is a fill station exchange program for their grunters, growlers, and other reusable containers, not just from Bagtown.

The cardboard flats that cans/bottles arrive in are reused.

They also use reusable can clips. These can clips are returned by customers and reused.


Energy efficiency, when it comes to brewing, hot water is used, and they use a heat exchanger to heat a second kettle. The heat exchange uses cold water to cool down hot wort (unfermented beer) as it is added to the fermenters. Output is hot water which can be reused in a second batch of beer if brewing back to back.

Does not give out bottled water, bottled water is not an option. Tap water only.


The hand sanitizer comes from Moonshine Creek, a New Brunswick company.

The Covid shields that hang between the bar and the customers are windows that came from the side of the road.
