Really “green” beer

Happy St. Patrick’s day! I was looking around for green beer recipes today (it’s 4-5 drops of green food coloring) but also found this “green” approach to brewing beer @ Wired…

A time-honored tradition on St. Patrick’s Day is to drink green beer. But Brooklyn Brewery won’t partake in the ritual. Instead, the brew pub serves up beer that’s honey-colored or amber gold. In terms of environmental impact, however, its beers are as green as they come.

Brooklyn Brewery, located on Brewer’s Row in Brooklyn, New York, is one of a handful of breweries around the country that uses sustainable energy when producing its beer.

    New Belgium, the company that makes Fat Tire, is supposedly pretty green as well:

    Good for Brooklyn Brewery. Too bad their beer tastes like ass (the lager at least).
