Beer off oil? Sounds like a great idea to me! This week’s video comes from Kevin Bonham over at the Food Matters blog.

According to Kevin:

I had the pleasure of visiting the (still under construction) brewing operations of a new startup nestled in the southern green mountains of Vermont, that is running a kickstarter campaign to “get beer off oil,” by converting a gas burner to use sustainably harvested wood pellets to generate heat.
