How amazing a product is beer? You can choose to either drink it, or turn waste beer into ethanol and fuel your vehicle. The Democratic National Convention in Denver will be doing just that, with the Official E85 Ethanol Producer being Molson Coors.
The fuel for all 400 GM Flex Fuel vehicles will be donated by Molson Coors. The Golden, Co brewery produces about 3 millions gallons of the fuel annually, all from waste beer. Coors representatives then continued to spout off all sorts of cheesy lines about the government, some of which rhymed.
In the end, it’s pretty cool that brewery waste can be put to a good use. Can we hope for government subsidies to encourage brewing? Probably not.
Note: Yikes, I just paid $4.05 for a gallon this morning at Chevron. Maybe I should try pouring Coors directly into my tank.
