Mahonia Building & Sustainable Craft Beverage Tour Sign Up
Monday, March 2, 2020 from 3pm - 5pm.
Mahonia Building Tour – 3:00 – 4:00pm
Tour Leader: Charlie Tilt | CEO and Co-Owner, Mahonia Building
Join us for a tour of Eugene’s Mahonia Building which features an exterior made of reclaimed wood and metal from torn-down buildings and leftover materials from other construction projects. Staircases are made from cross-laminated timber, while hallway flooring was patch-worked from an old school gymnasium. Walls are insulated with straw bales, made with soil and clay from the building site and straw from an organic wheat farmer in Junction City. Get a behind-the-scenes look at Mahonia’s zero waste systems, green energy practices, material reuse, local food, cargo bike delivery, mixed-use commercial tenants, daylighting, straw bale insulation and earth plaster, water reclamation and stormwater treatment, salmon safe landscaping and a relationship supportive of the built environment.
20 minute walk between venues 4:00 – 4:20pm
Ninkasi Brewing Company Tour & Tasting 4:20 – 5:00pm
Tour Leader: Bryan Ward | Hospitality Director, Ninkasi Brewing
Join us for a freshly brewed pint and a Sustainability Tour of Ninkasi Brewing Company and learn how 98% of all raw materials come from within 400 miles radius or less, how their green roof space helps reduce the urban heat island effect, while providing habitat for local fauna. See how they utilize solar panels to generate electricity for our 272 brew house. Other highlights include composting at all facilities, both employee and customer facing, learning about certain hop alternatives to reduce waste and increase beer yields and how Ninkasi donates all spent grain to a local cattle farmer and this farmer uses the spent grain as feed for his livestock.
