Sierra Nevada powers cars with beer leftovers

Beer fuels many a late night for people out at bars, but generally speaking it doesn't fuel cars. Until now, that is. Sierra Nevada, brewer of delicious beers, has purchased a MicroFueler, a contraption that produces ethanol from water, sugar and yeast. Yeast also happens to be a major byproduct of beer fermentation, allowing them to make fuel out of beer leftovers.

It's a great way for them to recycle their waste in an eco-friendly manner while also being able to brag about their cars being super drunk all the time. Which is awesome. It's great to see companies creatively taking care of their waste and being eco-friendly, isn't it?
