How to Decrease Carbon Emissions by Drinking Beer

Instead of patronizing grocery stores to buy a mass-produced brewski shipped in hundreds of miles and packaged in throw-away containers--all the while increasing carbon emissions--why not trek over to Yazoo Brewing Company just a couple of blocks southwest of Hope Gardens and pick up a reuseable "growler" of beer or ale? They have open tap room hours on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Patronizing Yazoo would substantially reduce the "carbon footprint" generated in the financial transaction between us, Budweiser, and Kroger, support a neighborhood brewery, and provide some tasty suds.
