Drink up

I just knew that beer would end up being the salvation of mankind:  Foster’s, scientists team up to generate clean energy from beer-making.

    If more companies could take small steps like Foster’s then you would have a significant impact.  It sounds from the article that it wouldn’t be too terribly difficult for other breweries to do the same.

    I love that technology!  It’s elegant how it solves both the waste water and energy problems at the same time.  Not to mention that it involves beer—any technology that involves beer is a technology dear to my heart.

    Good on Foster’s!  Now all they have to do is make their beer tasty, like Austrian beer…

    Hey, the Australians do a pretty good red wine nowadays- why not good beer?  Although hops do require more water than wine grapes, and water is one thing Oz does not have in abundance…

    I know this post is old but I thought I would add Anheuser-Busch seems to be doing the same thing.
