Valkyrie is honored to be one of the five Wisconsin breweries who were awarded energy efficiency grants by the Wisconsin Department of Administration (DOA) and Department of Natural Resources (DNR) through the U.S. Department of Energy State Energy Program.
With this grant we bought an oil press and converted the burner in our boiler to one that burns vegetable oil. This allows us to replace much of our use of fossil fuels with vegetable oil that we extrude from locally grown seeds and from waste vegetable oil (bio-oil) from local restaurants.

What is a Valkyrie?
Illustration of a Valkyrie by Arthur Reckham drawn for Wagner's opera "The Ring"
After the battle, the Valkyries chose half of those who had fallen and carried them to a place called Valhalla, the Vikings’ version of heaven (a drinking hall) which was ruled over by the god Odin. There, the deceased warriors prepared for the great battle at the end of the world (Rognarok) while the Valkyries brought them drink.
