nutbrown6) DRINK A SIX-PACK OF PEAK ORGANIC ALE
Portland-brewed Peak Organic does its part to promote a healthy environment by using hops and barley grown without pesticides or chemical fertilizers. What’s more, it’s distributed in part by Manhattan Beer Distributors, many of whose delivery trucks have been retrofitted to operate on compressed natural gas. Peak’s Nut Brown Ale is delicious, as are the Amber and the Pale. But the purchase price of its new Maple Oat Ale — brewed with locally procured ingredients, such as Vermont syrup and Maine oats — includes a donation to Chef’s Collaborative, which promotes a sustainable agriculture. (And if we have to remind you to recycle the bottles, you’re hopelessly unclear on the concept.)
