News : Green Tips: Smuttynose Brewing Company

This week's Green Tips come from Smuttynose Brewing Co.

1. When home brewing, make sure to compost all your organic materials. Trub and spent grains can be easily composted. Compost starting to pile up? Contact EcoMovement Consulting & Hauling.

2. Better yet, turn your spent grains into dog cookies. Simply Google "spent grain dog biscuits," and bake a healthy treat for your pooch.

3. Drink local beer. The more local the beer, the less distance it has to travel, and the lower the carbon footprint. I hear Smuttynose is a great local option.

4. Stock up on growlers from the Portsmouth Brewery for your fall party. Growlers — glass jugs with handles that usually run around a gallon each — can be re-filled again and again, reducing the number of glass and aluminum in your recycling bin.

5. Dining out? Order beer on tap instead of in a bottle or can and save on resources. The Portsmouth Brewery has 10 beers on tap — many of them local.
