I like Beer and wine, and so does 'da woman. Have been recycling the glass Michelob Ultra Bottles. But, it must still take quite a bit of energy to make the bottles, ship em, and plus the packaging. Checked out a keg setup... for about 200 bucks I can get the tap setup for an old fridge. Have an unplugged chest freezer and I can get a little box that will keep the freezer at 35 degrees or so. 5 lb carbon dioxide cylinders are a one time $90 dollar charge and $10 bucks to refill, about every 8 or so 1/4 kegs. Think I should go for it in the name of energy and money savings. And hey, they reuse the kegs. Should save about $6 bucks a case. Had a keg in my garage about 7 years ago, but sold it because I could not get rid of my friends, until it was time to go get another. Not an issue this time around. This small supermarket starting carrying a nice selection of box wines. 5 different brands in addition to the usual Almadan, Franzia and Peter Vella. Really like the "Black Box" Cabernet - would say its about equivelent to a $10 dollar bottle, and there are 3 bottles in the box for $17. Whoo woo, a $13 dollar savings. Plus, it doesn't go bad like an open bottle of Vino. Those glass bottles must take a bit of energy to produce and ship. I recycled them, and I recycle the carboard wine box too. You know, Red Wine lowers your cholesterol, and the flavanoids have cancer fighting properties.
