    Here is some info from Sound Brew I am not sure how old it is but here is a good jumping off point.

    Energy Use:

    Brewpubs:
    Electrical: 10-15 KWH/BBL
    Chiller: 8-20 BTU /BBL
    Natural gas: 1.3 therms/BBL

    Ingredients (averages for all malt beers):

    Water usage: 3.0-7.0 BBL per BBL of beer sold
    Malt: 45-60 #/BBL
    Hops: 0.5-0.8 #/BBL

    Water Usage Breakdown for Pub Breweries:

    Usage & output per 10 BBL, average (pub brewery)
    10 BBL in product
    12 BBL Cooling-reclaimed
    1 BBL Evaporated
    2.5 BBL With spent grain
    8.5 BBL To sewer
    33 bbl TOTAL

    Effluent (Average for Pub Breweries):

    BOD mg/L 600-1200
    COD mg/L 800-1600
    TSS mg/L 250-500
    pH 5.5-6.5
