New Planet Beer:
Gluten-free beer that tastes Gluten-free-free. I give it an 11. It’s great with little sandwiches.
Disclaimer: elephant received a six pack of New Planet beer, free. Rough job.
Honest to god, I get lucky, sometimes. When I was a child I managed to watch Spinal Tap without anyone having told me it was fake.
And I recently managed to drink down a couple New Planet beers before reading the label or box and realizing they were gluten-free. So, in a blind taste test, I can personally attest to NP being not only healthful and micro/local, but just about as good as any “real” conventional beer—and way healthier.
And isn’t that all you want to know, when it comes to gluten-free anything? That’s it’s edible/drinkable?
PS: New Planet goes great with lil’sandwiches.
As you might guess by the name, New Planet is eco-responsibility-minded.
New Planet Beer Company cares about our planet and we know you do too! So, we plan to give a portion of our proceeds every year to conservation organizations in Colorado that support direct action projects that make a tangible, demonstrable difference. If you have an organization or a project in mind–please let us know.
2009 and 2010 Ecosystem Conservation Project: New Planet Beer has selected a Wildlands Restoration Volunteers (WRV) restoration project at the popular Betasso Preserve west of Boulder for its 2009 and 2010 Ecosystem Conservation project.
Wildlands Restoration Volunteers engages volunteers in very high-quality ecological restoration projects in areas of great ecological significance. In its ten-year history, WRV has completed 200 restoration projects including road closures, wetland revegetation and invasive species control and involving more than 30,000 volunteer hours (check out this amazing time line http://wlrv.org/about/WRV-Timeline-First-10-Years.pdf).
Not only does WRV do spectacularly effective ecological restoration. It also designs and conducts projects so that the volunteers fall in love with restoration and have a life-changing experience.
Benjamin Betasso Trail Closure & Restoration
Boulder County Parks and Open Space recently purchased the 391 acre Benjamin property, near the popular Betasso Preserve Open Space, protecting 1,175 acres of wildlife habitat. The property has over 4.5 miles of social trails, some of which are highly eroded, steep/hazardous and completely unsustainable. In 2009 and 2010, WRV, working in partnership with the Boulder Mountainbike Alliance and others, will revegetate the most eroded and unsustainable social trails, which BCPOS has already officially closed.
To get involved with WRV or learn more about the project, go to www.wlrv.org or contact us at New Planet Beer.
