Abstract: Several carbon footprint (CF) studies have been so far carried out to assess the environmental impact of the brewing industry. In this work, a series of reliable secondary data for small-, medium-, and large-sized breweries were collected and used to develop a simplified model to estimate the cradle-to-grave (C2G) CF of the production of a functional unit consisting of 1 hL of lager beer packed in 66-cL (glass or polyethylene terephthalate, PET) bottles. With reference to the typical operating c
