The historic Mill House features three floors and more than 200 seats in 5,000 square feet of completely renovated space, including both an upscale restaurant and an on-site brewpub. The team also has an 8,000 square foot off-site brewing facility a few blocks away where most of the brewing, canning, and distribution takes place.
Mill House Brewing is run by Brewmasters Larry Stock and Jamie Bishop, who met on a school bus in 5th grade. These longtime friends have led MHBC to become a major player in the explosive craft beer scene coming out of the Hudson Valley, striving for the perfect balance of art and science.
Mill House was using default electricity and natural gas service from the local utility company. The lack of price certainty and control was “not the kind of roller coaster we like to ride. But at the time, we didn’t even know we had a choice.” With the utility price changing drastically every month— in some cases increasing as much as 50%— it became increasingly difficult for the Mill House team to anticipate and plan for consistent energy costs.
After a full analysis of the historical energy usage and spend, a Marathon Energy Advisor developed a holistic fixed energy plan for Mill House that locked in both electricity and natural gas supply costs.
“If you don’t have a Marathon Personal Energy Advisor, you’re totally missing out on the chance to think strategically about your past, present, and future energy use, as well as the opportunity to fix your overall spend—then you can finally stop sweating energy costs and get back to business, literally.” – Jamie
