Something’s Brewing in Your ‘Burb
The best cure's right outside your door: drinking locally produced beer's an eco-friendlier way to get your malted hops fix. Next time you don your beer goggles, make sure you don't, um, hop into bed with just anyone.
1) Support for your local economy. Keep some of your money circulating in your hometown.
2) Better taste. Crafted in smaller batches, microbrews offer more varied flavors than the average 6-pack from 7-Eleven.
3) Energy savings. Most of our food and drink travels between 1,500 and 2,500 miles before going down our gullets. Less mileage means less energy use.
4) Drinking what's on tap saves aluminum and glass bottles.
