Goodbye Carbon Footprint, Hello Hoof Print!

Now this is what I'm talking about! Wynkoop Brewery in Denver, CO (Denver's first brewpub) is kicking things off this Friday (4/16) around 6pm with a new bi-monthly program: deliveries to the brewery's downtown retailers via horse-drawn wagon. This is set to take place on a regular basis now too - every second and fourth Friday of the month. D&D Featherfoot Clydesdales and Carriages will be providing the brewery with the wagons, along with two 2,000-pound Clydesdale horses.

"It's a great way for us to shrink our carbon footprint while expanding our hoof print."

Thanks for embracing such a marvelous idea and innovative step in sustainability practice (even though horse-drawn wagons are by no means anything new...but it's been at least 100 years since beer was delivered by them in Denver!)! Hopefully this model will help facilitate the development of even more ideas within the microbrewing world!

Peace and Love!
