Molson Coors gives waste beer fuel to Denver Dems
DENVER, Colorado ” Some corporations donate dollars and others donate services. But Molson Coors is donating fuel made mostly out of beer waste to the Democratic National Convention.
The Denver 2008 Convention Host Committee said Wednesday that Molson Coors will donate all the ethanol-gasoline fuel blend for the convention’s fleet of flex-fuel vehicles.
The fuel, known as E85, is 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline.
The ethanol is made from beer lost during packaging or rejected on a quality basis at the company’s brewery in Golden. The Denver company began converting it to ethanol in 1996 and today produces about 3 million gallons of ethanol per year.
Molson Coors, one of the world’s largest brewers, also will provide beer for some events during the convention.

More base areas open means more space for guests to disperse upon, even if those base area openings don’t translate into more actual terrain openings.
