Brooklyn Brewery: Don’t Frack With Us (video)



The brewmeister of Brooklyn Brewery says toxic fracking chemicals like methanol, benzene and ethylene glycol (found in anti-freeze) could contaminate his beer by leaking into New York’s water supply. Unlike neighboring Pennsylvania, New York state has promised to ban high-volume fracking from the city’s watershed. But environmentalists say the draft fracking regulations are weak and leave the largest unfiltered water supply in the US—not to mention the beer that is made from it—vulnerable.

  1. Apparently all they needed to know about fracking they learned from watching Gasland.

    No offense to Brooklyn Brewery, but stick with what you know.
