Green Beer

Did you happen to catch the story about 5 Seasons Brewing Company in Georgia and their 5 Seasons Westside location that uses a rainwater catchment system to obtain the water used in their beer? Great idea. I wonder though, if a lot of filtering is necessary, if it's really that green if you step back and look at the big picture. It's a step in the right direction though.

Right now, I'm sipping a Limited from Buzzards Bay Brewing. I was curious about this brewery and I've found out that they're very green. Carbon neutral, responsible production, using daylight to illuminate the interior of the brewery when possible and plans for a community wind generator. They use water from the spring on their farm, which is probably as green if not greener than rainwater. In the non-literal sense that is.

Kudos to both 5 Seasons and Buzzards Bay.
