According to Firstcoastnews.comÂ Coors Brewing Co.Â has agreed to supply all the E85 ethanol needed to power the fleet of GM flex-fuel vehicles being driven at the Democratic National Convention in August.
FromÂ The Article:Â
“While most ethanol comes from corn, Molson Coors’ ethanol is produced from waste beer.
The beer is lost during packaging or is considered substandard for public consumption.
Company representative Al Timothy says Coors is the country’s first major brewer to convert waste beer to ethanol.
The brewery started doing it in 1996.Â CoorsÂ has beer that doesn’t meetÂ their quality standards and so that beer is sent to ethanol towersÂ and distilled down into 400 proof fuel-grade ethanol.
That fuel grade ethanol is blended with 15 percent gasoline and sold as E85 fuelÂ in Colorado.”
I don’t know about you, but here in NY weÂ just call that (“waste beer”)Â Keystone Light.
NowÂ whenÂ the KnicksÂ (Insert your team here) trade away their 1st round pick for a failed, overpaidÂ NBA Vet that will put them over the capÂ (who has yet to reach his potential), you canÂ at leastÂ have some solace in the fact that THIS draft will soon be a blacked out memory never to resurface!Â (THANK GOD ISIAH THOMAS IS GONE!)
Rules 1): For the first fourteen picks, each player must predict which athlete will be chosen before David Stern walks on stage. Any incorrect guess earns the offending fortune teller a five second drink. 2): After the first fourteen picks, each player may predict which athlete will be chosen before David Stern walks on stage. Any correct guess allows said player to force an opponent to drink for five seconds. 3): Each player must choose a different major collegiate conference and drink for five seconds whenever someone is drafted from said chosen conference.
Well its nice to see something is still American in this country… After Miller went the way of SAB it would sad to see the the last large-scale AmericanÂ brewery to be majority owned and operated in the United States beÂ bought outÂ by the Belgium company InBev.
Although a takeover is still quite possible it is nice to see that Anheuser-Busch will not go down without a fight.
“Billionaire investor Warren Buffett, whose Berkshire Hathaway is Anheuser’s second-largest shareholder, told CNBC on Wednesday that he viewed the beer battle as ‘an interesting spectator sport’ but had not thrown his support behind either side.”
