Earth Now Gets a Beer Hug

A beer that’s green!!! Sounds absurd? Well don’t be too surprised. After organic and biodynamic wine it is green beer that is making news these days.

Going by the name of Cascade Green, this organic beer company manufactures the fuzzy liquor in Tasmania Australia with a commitment towards a greener life. Their special product is called ‘Beer of the Earth’ as Cascade Green has been consistently working for over 6 years to reduce the energy and water consumption by 16% and 30% respectively in the manufacturing process.

The website is an extremely vibrant affair. But you have to be more than 18 years of age to access it. Here I read about the brewery’s green location that is surrounded by 250 hectares of pristine forest with Mount Wellington in the backdrop. The company is doing its best to maintain the beauty of the natural surroundings. And it is also taking special care to neutralize carbon emissions by purchasing carbon offsets. Via

Nice post, Rahul. I'll have to check out Cascade (if I can get it where I live). I think a lot of the organic beer companies are starting to focus on sustainability in the bottling process versus what goes in the bottle, much like their wine counterparts. It's great to see that happening.
