UK's first Eco-Friendly Beer gets Royal Sign of Approval
The Prince of Wales and his wife Camilla have given the royal seal of approval to the UK's first eco-friendly beer. Backing a Suffolk brewery's attempts to reduce its carbon footprint, the couple sipped the ale in the upmarket seaside resort of Southwold.
Adnams' East Green Brew is made from locally grown barley and brewed in an energy-efficient brew house. The company also sells the tipple in reduced weight glasses and bottles to make it more eco-friendly.
