Coming soon: Wooden beer bottles


Yesterday, Today, tomorrowOh, you thought cans were the greenest thing in beer packaging? Denmark’s Carlsberg plans to up the ante with the first totally biodegradable beer bottle made from wood fiber.

Produced entirely from sustainably sourced wood fiber, the “Green Fiber Bottle”cap and all—will completely degrade in a landfill.

The three-year project marks a partnership between Carlsberg and packaging company Ecoxpac, a company that also produces fiber trays similar to egg crates. Ecoxpac’s website displays a small illustration of the Green Fiber Bottle, which doesn’t look like much beer packaging Americans are used to.

The only downside? You won’t get that 10 cents back in Michigan. :(

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
