When we see an idea we love, we love to share it. Here’s one that peaked our interest — biodegradable fish-friendly 6-pack holders! Now that more and more great craft beers are available in cans, more and more great craft beers require those pesky plastic 6-pack carrying rings. Or maybe not. A craft brewery in Florida, Saltwater Brewery, has developed a brilliant solution to the old-school plastic 6-pack holders. It’s a biodegradable and edible carrying ring made from byproduct from the brewing process. Though you probably wont see the 6-pack carriers on our menu (yet?), fish and fowl alike can dine on these smart packages.
This is a novel solution to a growing problem that we hope to see soon. Who knows, maybe 6-pack “chips” are in our future? But, for right now it’s encouraging to know that these barley-based appetizers may help to further expand the delights of craft beer throughout the animal kingdom.
