PNW Brewers & Distillers Malt Bag Recycling Program — New School Beer + Cider

Free collection of used bags is offered to CMG and GWM customers in the department dedicated to hot trucks. While CMG and GWM customers make up a significant percentage of the region’s breweries and distilleries, those who do not use their malt can drop off their own “logs” of rolled bags by appointment at the CMG distribution center in Vancouver, Washington.
