Sad Day in Portland

Post by blacksheep on Thu Jan 07, 2010 8:27 pm

"tragedy at Portland's Widmer Brewing today: thanks to a major power outage, the brewing brothers have had to dump 7,750 gallons of un-finished beer.

Don't grab the growler and run to North Portland just yet. The roughly 62,000 pints of beer were supposed to become a new brew called Dead Lips IPA (slated for release Feb. 1) but according to Kurt Widmer, the ruined beer will instead be shipped off to cattle farms to be used as either feed or fertilizer. As Kurt explains, Widmer turns most of its beer by-products into cattle feed. After the sugar is extracted from barley malts and wheat malts, the grains apparently make pretty nutritious non-alcoholic cow food. "

Apparently cows like beer.
