Water

It’s 4:30pm on a payday Friday and I just remembered it’s Blog Action Day and this year’s topic is water. Needless to say, like the true neglectful blogger I have become, I have not prepared a proper blog post. I have no detailed research about water consumption, the increasing pollution and degradation of our watersheds, our need for local and regional conservation in light of climate change, etc., etc.

I have nothing.

Oh – wait!

carib beer

Did you know that it takes between 8 to 24 gallons of water to make a pint of beer? That’s water used in every aspect of the process – from growing the grain to bottling the product. The cultivation of the ingredients themselves takes a staggering 89% of the water used! Suddenly that t-shirt slogan “Conserve water. Drink beer” seems a touch ironic.

ALMOST as ironic as the fact that the bar next door is having a Carib 3 for $10 Happy Hour.
