October 2, 2020

Salisbury, MD, October 2, 2020 —

The Craft Beer Guild Distributing of New York, LLC, achieved a long-standing goal and milestone in 2020, securing a new energy contract that will put them on the road to meet their goal of 100% green energy. While the goal was a long-time coming, their partnership with APPI Energy allowed them to enter a supplier contract that aligned with their wants and needs.

The Craft Beer Guild Distributing of New York initially met with APPI Energy’s procurement services through their membership with the National Beer Wholesaler Association. Craft Beer Guild Distributing of New York manager, Dave Maliwacki, expressed their longstanding desire for the organization to move forward with the purchase of 100% green energy. Senior Energy Consultant, Noel Temple, ensured that their energy needs would be met by APPI Energy’s vast pool of vetted suppliers and recommended the most qualified and appealing contract. They received a qualified offer with 100% green energy in a contract, which they gladly accepted.

“I’ve been discussing energy options with Dave since January of this year,” said Noel Temple. “We began discussing procurement energy contracts and these discussions evolved into our green energy solution programs. I was able to match their organization with a supplier that would be able to provide a product and contract that met their sustainability goals of 100% green energy. We know the brewers will be proud to be represented by an organization that values sustainable energy and is taking the steps toward 100% green energy.”

“The Craft Beer Guild Distributing of New York is honored to represent world-class, award-winning brewers from local markets and around the globe,” said Maliwacki. “We have a responsibility to innovate and push boundaries, so we represent these breweries to the best of our ability. Transitioning to 100% green energy is one way of showing that we care about the highest quality product whether it is from a distillery we represent or our energy source.”
