RJ Rockers Brewery

Located in South Carolina since 1997, RJ Rockers has been known for their hand-crafted high quality brews. Microbreweries operate with a great deal of hot water in the brewing process so it was only natural to look at solar thermal to reduce their cost and carbon footprint. On an average day the brewery goes through 1,750 gallons of hot water. That’s enough hot water to satisfy 25 single family homes.
