Coors Crap Water to Power Democrats

From the AP yesterday:

Some corporations donate dollars and others donate services. Molson Coors is donating fuel made mostly out of beer waste to the Democratic National Convention.

The Denver 2008 Convention Host Committee said Wednesday that Molson Coors will donate all the ethanol-gasoline fuel blend the convention's fleet of flex-fuel vehicles will need.

The fuel, known as E85, is 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline.

The ethanol is made from beer lost during packaging or rejected for quality reasons at the company's brewery in Golden. The Denver company began converting waste beer to ethanol in 1996 and today produces about 3 million gallons of ethanol per year.

Molson Coors, one of the world's largest brewers, also will provide beer for some events during the convention.


Let me get this straight - they reject some batches of Coors beer for 'quality reasons?'

It sounds more like Coors is an ethanol company whose waste product happens to vaguely resemble "beer."
