Flying Fish Brewing Updates on Expansion and Local Impact
Although the building is still in the ugly ducking phase, we’re starting to do test brews and continue making progress on the automation on the packaging equipment. Many, many, many more steps to go.
On the sustainability side, our solar panels start going up this week. And a couple of weeks back we worked with Craig McGee from the Camden County Soil Conservation District and Mike Haberland from Rutgers (along with myriad helpers) to install a rain garden. This will capture about 15% of the storm water that used to run off the roof and funnel it to the garden to slowly percolate back into the water table instead of rushing into the Cooper River.
The native plants will attract butterflies, bees and hummingbirds. Unfortunately some of the plants have already attracted deer who have enjoyed them immensely, so we’re putting up a fence to give them a chance to get started.
If you want to learn more about rain gardens, Sustainable Cherry Hill and Mike will be presenting a workshop on May 31.
