Green Beer

According to Environmental News Network, “in 2003 Brooklyn Brewery became the first NY Company to switch to 100% wind-generated electricity. Community Energy, who manages the wind turbine that produce electricity for their company estimate that BB’s alternative energy system stops 335,000 pounds of carbon dioxide, 1,500 pounds of sulfur dioxide and 500 pounds of nitrogen oxide from being emitted into the atmosphere annually. They also donate their leftover grain waste to local farmers in NJ.”

Hooray beer.
