However, this year I am determined to reclaim St. Patrick's in my own way and focus on how being engulfed in green can be of benefit--not in the green beers and trashy 'kiss me I'm Irish' (or God forbid 'kiss me I'm Iowa-ish') t-shirt way, but in going green and making a commitment to sustainability.
I thought we should make year one easy...so easy even a drunken leprechaun could manage. So, this year the team at SJVCEO challenges you to Get Yer Green Beer On! No. Do not--I repeat DO NOT--add artificial food coloring to your cheap brew. Instead, select your golden goodness from a green-leading brew! Huffington Post ran a piece on the top eight green U.S. breweries, with Fat Tire and Sierra Nevada leading the pack in sustainable business models and taste.
