Imagine having a frosty tumbler of pale ale before you on a hot, humid day. Beer - what's not to love? One of the most pleasant surprises about adopting a "greener" lifestyle is that it's surprisingly easy to drink beer and be socially responsible about it. The same goes for wine. The crafts of beer and wine making are among humanity's oldest arts (the oldest known text in the world is an ancient beer recipe), so it makes sense that they should be ecologically sound.When looking for environmentally friendly beer options, your best bet is to patronize your local or regional breweries.
