Molson/Coors beer powered cars at the DNC! No kidding!

Beer Powered Cars!

Thanks to Molson Coors Brewing Company, "waste beer" will be used to power close to 450 flex fuel cars used at the Democratic Convention.

So what the heck is "waste beer"??

Waste beer is beer that is “lost during packaging or deemed below quality standards” according to Coors in a New York Times story.

It appears that Molson Coors waste beer can be converted into ethanol and power GM's flex fuel cars.

You can read up on this waste beer to ethanol effort by Molson Coors on the L.A. Times Top of the Ticket blog by clicking here or click here for the The Caucus, New York Times Politics Blog.

The Molson name gives me really bad flashbacks to several years back when my sister was in law school at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. We drank Molson Ice one crazed weekend at the Y-Not II bar and thought the beer was hallucinogenic.

Why was I drinking a Canadian beer in the hometown of Miller Beer? Hmmm! Sphere: Related Content
