Question for the Day

What is worse for the environment, meat or booze?

Please remember that my posing of the question does not sanction a belief in the inherent ‘badness’ of either. But given what is thought about the environmental impacts of using grains as inputs to meat protein production, I’d love to see how “efficient” it is to convert grains into booze calories. And don’t forget that drinking is naughty! I think a PSA told me that when I was a kid. By the way, I had loin of pork with a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale at dinner last night.

    I am working with a brewing company right now and they said it takes 10 gallons of water to make 1 gallon of beer.

    Also, it depends on what type of beer. Craft beers use a huge amount of hops and grains compared to their cheaper equivalents.
