Here at NuBe Green we are keeping the shop cool and breezy with our garage door rolled back and our ceiling fans spinning... and cold summertime brew on our minds! Those of us nestled in this land of craft brew are lucky enough to have our choice of neighborhood breweries and access to some of the most delicious beer in the world. And we couldn't have an easier option for eco-friendly refreshment than picking up that local beer in a reusable glass growler!
Our favorite Seattle neighborhood breweries:
Ballard: Maritime Brewing – try the Old Seattle Lager
Capitol Hill: Elysian Brewing – try the Zephyrus Pilsener
Downtown: Pike Brewing – try Naughty Nellie Golden Ale
Georgetown: Georgetown Brewery – try Manny's Pale Ale
Eastside: Redhook Brewery – try the Rope Swing Summer Pilsener

Drink Eco-Responsibly!
Growlers are 64 ounces, which is the same as 4 full 16-oz pints, or just over 5 12-oz bottles, and only cost about $7-$10 to fill. For each growler you fill, you are avoiding the production and disposal of nearly a full six-pack of cans or bottles. According to the , that saves enough energy to run a 50-watt light bulb for 42 hours. Add the carbon saved from shipping and distribution, and multiply by X number of thirsty friends, and your apres-work drink decision can really make a difference!
Growlers vs. Six-Packs: the winner here on NRDC!
