Saving the planet with beer…

10 Oct

I’m not one to repost those pesky viral emails that flood our inboxes, but I received one I actually thought amusing:

If you had purchased $1,000.00 of Delta Air Lines stock one year ago you would have $49.00 left.

With Enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the original $1,000.00.

With WorldCom, you would have had less than $5.00 left.

But, if you had purchased $1,000.00 worth of beer one year ago, drank all of the beer, then turned in the cans for the aluminum recycling REFUND, you would have $214.00 cash.

Based on the above, the best current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle. It’s called the 401-Keg.

A recent study found the average American walks about 900 miles a year.

Another study found Americans drink, on the average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year.

That means, on average, Americans get about 41 miles to the gallon.

Har har.

Being a proponent of fresh draft beer, the eco-friendly growler jug is a mainstay at The Red Hot. We sell 32oz. versions, 1/2 Gallon versions, 2L versions, and now with the light shed upon me that we peds can ride Shanks’ Pony for a whopping 41 mpg (and the fact that a lot of our growler regulars will commonly fill 2 half-gallon jugs for a weekender), we now carry the BBQ/Picnic/ParTay 1 gallon (8 pints) version:


The Red Hot…giving you yet another way to save our planet.
