For efficiency's sake: New Belgium

A test brew of 100 barrels -- when most of us think in terms of 1 barrel.

Brewhouse efficiency -- but in terms of energy efficiency rather than in terms of brewhouse yield.

Happy, happy ... talking happy brewing talk:

This place is currently run off of renewable resources with 90% of its power being wind and 10% being methane conversion. They utilize natural light in their bottling facility and their spent grain is given to a local farmer who uses it to feed his cattle (lucky cows). They focus on creating a good environment for their employees and for the rest of the world.

Ahh! But here in the Washington/Baltimore area, you can't get that beer. It's New Belgium Brewing from Colorado.
