Did You Know?

According to Firstcoastnews.com Coors Brewing Co. 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.

From The Article: 

“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.  Coors has beer that doesn’t meet their quality standards and so that beer is sent to ethanol towers and distilled down into 400 proof fuel-grade ethanol.

That fuel grade ethanol is blended with 15 percent gasoline and sold as E85 fuel in Colorado.”

I don’t know about you, but here in NY we just call that (“waste beer”) Keystone Light.
