Anheuser-Busch Finds A Better Use For Its Beer By-Products

I’d heard rumblings before, but not that there was forward movement like this. Am I wrong to assume this is something only large-scale operations can take advantage of, or is there a way for the little guys to reap some benefit? We’ve seen smaller breweries using solar and collecting rainwater.

Victory brewing used to give spent grains to a local farmer (they may still) and now they have solar panels on the roof and i believe they compost.

Sierra Nevada and New Belgium seem to lead the way in green-ness. I would imagine that this specific project could only be undertaken by breweries producing massive amounts of spent grains. Smaller places try too though - We’ll be giving our grains to a local urban farm for their chickens & vermiculture setup and using a solar hot water system.
