Mmmm: Sierra Nevada Is Making Bio-Fuel

February 4, 2009


There was a time in my life when I drank Sierra Nevada like it was my job. Sadly, I was fired. And now the company is making bio-fuel with beer leftovers.

Sierra Nevada, brewer of delicious beers, has purchased a MicroFueler, a contraption that produces ethanol from water, sugar and yeast. Yeast also happens to be a major byproduct of beer fermentation, allowing them to make fuel out of beer leftovers.
Is that not beautiful? I demand a test barrel of this new brew-fuel. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Keg stands!
