So you’ve heard that Eskom is asking us all to please conserve energy this winter as they are anticipating black-outs in the Cape again this year. You’ve heard that we need to save water as it is a non renewable resource.
At Mitchell’s we are just as concerned about our resources as the next guy, so here are a few ways that you can help save the planet while sipping on a cold, craft beer.
1. Keg it! By renting a Mitchell’s Party Keg, you are not only saving the environment and assisting waste management services by not disposing of bottles and bottle caps, but you are also saving on electricity! All you need to chill your fresh, draught beer on tap is a few bags of ice. No refrigeration necessary for 30 litres of Mitchell’s fine craft beer.
2. Recycle it! The City of Cape Town has recycling bins posted all over the show where you can drop our new glass bottles so that they may one day lead a life as a fancy chandelier or adorn the shelves of your grannies as knick knacks and what nots. We have made this process easier by going into glass as there aren’t as many plastic drop off zones.
3. Stay Healthy! Beer is full of B vitamins which give your body energy and keep you from being run down as well as helping your immune system out, so, for the sake of the tee totallers that require our medical resources, make sure that you are doing your bit and getting your daily vitamin B! (Drink Responsibly, we are not real doctors, so don’t blame it on us if you overdose on Vitamin Beer!)
4. Save Water! We understand the importance rehydration. Now we know that nothing beats water when it comes to replenishing the liquid that your body needs to function, but let’s be honest, nothing beats beer for that satisfying rehydrating, chilled out feeling you get after cracking one after a long day. The great thing about having a few of our brews in the fridge for these occasions is that you don’t need to go to the extra energy using, water transforming process of making ice. Well, you shouldn’t. So for every beer you have, you’re saving a glass of water and a few ice blocks to boot!
If you have any other ways that you can think of to chill this winter while saving the planet, let’s hear them! @MitchellsBrew
Here’s to Earth, the only planet with beer! Cheers!
