Will you be drinking green beer today?

I don't mean the dyed stuff, the stuff of leprechauns. I'm talking about the environmentally ​conscious kind.

Last October the brewery unveiled a version of its regular Mavericks Tunnel Vision IPA made with recycled water after a blind taste test at an urban sustainability conference in the Bay Area.

Made using the same Nasa water recycling technology as astronaut Scott Kelly used during his year long stint on the International Space Station, the tasting panel couldn’t detect which of the two pints was made with recycled water.

“This is the product [where] people think that water is the most important ingredient,” said Mendonca. “So if I can demonstrate to people that not only is [greywater beer] good, but it’s great, then why wouldn’t you use that water for

It is a little weird how talking about drinking is okay on St Patrick's day. I am not sure if I had a beer or not? I think I did... one The Sixth Glass by Boulevard Brewing... One 12 oz.


But I do not get into making fun of cultures like that. It would be really easy to get really disparaging if we did the same things for other groups...

LOL nawww I am Irish.. well half. If I am going to drink a beer it is not likely something that can be dyed Green.. and is damn sure is not going to be that Swill Guinness!

Since when is drinking only brought up on St Patrick's Day? This is about a play on green beer, which I can't think of any other day people of all backgrounds drink green dyed beer if you can please feel free to enlighten me.

Figured. I've been here a long time and I can honestly that there are only a hand few that throw around ethnic digs in their normal speech as if it were second nature. Not sure how you confused me as one of them

Easily the worst beer I've ever had.
