Canadian Beer Drinkers Killing The Planet

Thu Nov 29, 2007 10:28 pm

Look at this link here

That's good stuff right there. I for one enjoy the part where it mentions that Canadians fridges where they store "Molson's and Labatt's," as if we don't have any other type of beer.

But in honor of this study I intend to unplug my new beer fridge and start up that old that that I have lying around somewhere, just because the freon is leaking into the creek behind my place doesn't mean that it shouldn't still have one last kick at it.

Not yet, but when there is that's the preferred method for a party... The fridge doesn't always hold it all.

Canadians are now big contributers to global warming. eh? We have to draw the line somewhere. eh? Drinking beer is something the world cannot give up. eh? Even if it does cause global warming. eh?  Smile Is that a good Canadian impression? eh?

Help reduce C02 by drinking more beer.  Silly

On a serious note draft beer is more eco friendly. The keg is made from aluminum which can be recycled when it it worn out. It can be cleaned and filled hundreds of times. Reuse is better than recycling. Also draft beer is not pasteurized so you have less energy use.

My beer fridge was made in 1948 and works great. It even is filled with R-12 refrigerant.

Not to worry about freon (which is a Dupont brand name) leaking into the creek as it is a gas when it is released from a vacuum. It will only be in a liquid state in a vacuum, such as when it is in an AC unit or a refrigerator and that is only between the condenser and evaporator.

My favorites are Red Cap Ale, Steeler Lager, and Walkerville Lager.

I have to wonder if this is a faux story by some funny guys. the reference to Canadian brands of beer and some specialty foods seems to be a dead giveaway.
Yes, a second, older and far less efficient than today's fridges may contribute a little to 'global warming', but I bet more energy is involved in making, distibuting and otherwise getting the beer to your house than keeping it cold for a few weeks. Besides, those 2nd fridges could also be keeping soda, extra food and recently hunted foods like deer and so on that doesn't fit into the main fridge chilled.

The kegs are nowadays made exclusively from stainless steel.

Funny, since the weather has been cold in YLW here, I have kept all of my beer out on the patio, it works quite well as long as it doesnt get to cold.
Keep the shinny side up!

Yours is probably old enough it still has copper tubing in it. Freon doesn't attack that. It does attack aluminum which was used starting about the 1960's. They built them that way because the metal was cheaper and garenteed to fail, nessicated a new fridge.

I'll stick with bottles, those are just melted sand.

You know it. Draft is the only way to go.

I bet it is. I have never taken it apart because it works great. If it ain't broke don't fix it. It is a heavy old thing. It was made by Norge, which was a division of Borg-Warner. I paid $5 for it 10 years ago at a yard sale. I repainted it with automotive paint and it looks great.
