Triumph Brewing Company wins Nature's Plate award
Triumph Brewing Company of New Hope has won the Nature Conservancy’s 2013 Nature’s Plate award for sustainable restaurants in the Philadelphia metro area, and was presented with a commemorative plaque at a ceremony with New Hope’s mayor, Laurence Keller, at the restaurant on Dec. 18.
The Nature’s Plate contest, voted on by the public, recognizes restaurants that are committed to earth-friendly practices like using local or organic ingredients, serving free-range meats, offering vegetarian options or providing tap water instead of bottled.
“Triumph’s focus on local, seasonal and sustainable food is good for people, for Pennsylvania and for the planet,” said Bill Kunze, executive director for The Nature Conservancy in Pennsylvania. “We are proud to honor them with the Nature’s Plate award for 2013.”
Triumph’s general manager, Paul Foglia, says, “At Triumph, we have committed ourselves to providing the best dining experience to our customers. We find that sourcing from nearby farms, cheese artisans and butchers gives us some of the best quality food that we have ever seen and tasted, and because of that we have changed most of our menu to feature local, regional and sustainable products. Our customers’ favorite dishes still remain, the ingredients have just traveled less to get here.”
