    Default Organic beer Q

    Started reading Pollen's "omnivores decision" and his research on corn based products and just how prevelant this is in most of our intake. He states, the "alcohol in beer is fermented from corn". Do any of you know if this is the case with organic beer.

    Default I'm not 100% positive

    but I lived in Golden CO for some time and my roommate worked at the Coors brewery - and we were both home brewers. I'm pretty sure that he mentioned the fact that they (Coors) do not use fillers like corn or rice in any of their beers. Adolph Coors was from Bavaria and had a lot of respect for purity. So, if your looking for cheaper beer that is still pure, you might look into this. I can't vouch for their other beers like Keystone Ice - something like that might be suspect - but I may be wrong.

    Default Organic beer Q

    Organic is loosely defined as something made of carbon. Look it up in webster's dictionary. In the agriculture industry, organic farming refers to the use of organic chemicals, fertilizers, and pesticides-not necessarily safer. Corn is made of carbon, like almost everything on this planet.

    FYI, alcohol dehydrates your muscles and is stored as glycogen (fat).

    Obviously when people are discussing food related topics and organic is mentioned it is referring to Certified Organic and not the Chemistry definition of anything containing carbon.
