Beerology

In Uncategorized on April 22, 2011 at 7:46 pm

Locally brewed craft beer is one of the most environmentally friendly choices for beer drinkers. There’s very little waste and transportation of the cold ones are minimal.

The Buffalo Museum of Science recently hosted its annual Beerology, a night devoted to nearby beer brewers and experts explaining the science behind the pour.

Some of the tastiest beers came from Flying Bison Brewing, a package and brewery located in the city of Buffalo. Amongst it’s award-winning beer was Buffalo Lager, a light bodied, golden beer with a balanced flavor. Leaving the palate with a clean finish is a plus.

An American craft brewer is small, independent, and traditional, according to The Brewers Association, and there’s another local brewer that fits this description.

Pearl Street Grill & Brewery, also in Buffalo, features a full-grain brew house right in the main dining room. They claim “all beer is served fresh at the peak of quality.”

While consuming locally brewed beers, in honor of Earth Day, what can be done to make the process even more environmentally friendly?

Brewers can do the right thing by using environmental sustainable energy. Between installing wind and/or solar power, heat exchangers, and massive recycling programs, a professional, independent beerologist can have a quality product and happy drinkers.
