Drink Organic Beer

Amy Stodghill, in her article, 'Green Your Beer Selection,' explains how beer selection can influence how much energy and waste go into just wanting a 'cold one.'

| August 2008 Web

Several ways exist to start greening your beer selection. Here are some tips to get started:

1. Ask for a local brew. Most are shipped locally, which saves on fuel and transport emissions. You can find a local brewery at  www.BrewPubZone.com.

2. Go for pints over bottles. You’re essentially saving on packaging, because draft beer is usually served in glasses. One keg serves about 124 pints, and the kegs can be refilled by the distributor.

3. Choose organic. Ask for an organic brew (Anheuser-Busch now makes two organic varieties). The ingredients are healthier and grown without toxic pesticides and fertilizers. If organic isn’t available, ask to see if your bar of choice can get some.
