Coors Sells Beer to Make Fuel
We found the following news report about Coors today, and we have to admit it makes us a bit worried.
According to a news report in Monday's Denver Post, Coors Brewing Co. uses waste from the beer production process to produce approximately 1.5 million gallons of ethanol, which is then sold in the wholesale market.
Coors, which partners with area engineering firm Merrick & Company to produce the alternative fuel, said they plan to build another ethanol facility due to the success of the program, according to the paper.
Not that we have anything against alternate energy sources - we love anything that will help battle high prices at the gas pumps. Plus, we think it's great to see beer fueling something other than bar fights and blackouts. No, our major concern is that if they start putting beer into gasoline, we'll have a full-time job keeping the interns from drinking the 93 octane.
