Last night I went out with friends to #WisconsinBrewing. Although I was not drinking beer, I observed a few things. I brought my own water bottle, and asked the bartenders to fill it for me several times. Yes, I tipped them well and was happy to.
My companions were drinking beer. It’s a brewery, so in addition to fun 80s music, beer is kinda the point. I was amazed that you don’t get to refill your beer cup there. I think there must be some sanitation reason (the tap goes into the cup, right?) but the first step in Reduce, Reuse, Recycle is reduce. Could they use glass?
Let’s get on board with that one. Let’s tell breweries they need to figure out a way to make this work. Maybe they need to understand that decisions like making more plastic cups have global consequences.
