At the risk of making ourselves look like fools in front of more knowledgeable beer environmentalists, I thought I’d share this article that Matt sent in about the three most environmentally friendly breweries. According to the author, the three breweries are (in order):
- Brooklyn Brewery (warning, annoying website alert). Why? 100% wind power.
- New Belgium (warning, another annoying website alert). Why? 70% wind power, reclamation of waste water, cultivation of bacteria and miscellaneous
- Coors (I’m not linking to them). Oooh. Why? Aluminum cans and selling ethanol. Quite frankly I’m not sure if this should be on the list. Aluminum cans are great, but they’re no longer novel.
Do you guys have any thoughts on this list?
P.S. We’re congregating tonight at Jeff’s tonight to witness the domination train that is Memphis, but won’t be brewing. You’re welcome to come out.
