"A Vermont brewery is giving new meaning to the idea of green beer. Magic Hat Brewing Co., of South Burlington, says it is the first site to use a device that turns spent grain from the brewing process into natural gas that is then used to fuel brewing operations. The 42-foot tall anaerobic methane digester, installed last summer, extracts energy from the spent hops, barley, and yeast left over from the brewing process." (02/14/11)
