Green Your Drinks: Beer

Draught beer is greener Raise your glasses: We'd like to propose a toast (or three) to the green life. This week we'll give you green tips about ecofriendly drinks.

 Tip #1: Tap That Keg

Sierra Nevada and New Belgium breweries have good reputations for sustainable practices. Check out Sierra magazine's beer taste test to read about our top picks for tasty, ecofriendly ales.
