What’s up tonight? Someone is fracking with your beer! edition

by -

Tonight at Brooklyn Brewery, come see the Environmental Advocates of New York, the Manhattan Young Democrats, and the New York Water Rangers ask industrial gas “What the frack?!”, and then watch industrial gas reply “What?” because industrial gas doesn’t watch good TV.

Fracking is what some critics call the new hip way big business is trying to kill you, this time by going after the water supply (you know, I thought only people in Gotham City got to use that sentence). Fracking is when corporations drill for natural gas by shooting toxic water underground, breaking up rock formations and releasing gas. Great idea, except for, you know, the whole toxic water part. Of course, this wasn’t very worrying to me, as I never touch the stuff anyways, until someone explained that beer also does in fact have water in it! They’re poisoning our beer! Brooklyn, go get ‘em!

Come out to support those trying to stop our faucets from becoming flamethrowers (go ahead and google it, I’ll wait) and drink some good, clean water in the form of good, clean beer.

RSVP here; a $5 donation is recommended at the door. Because heartlessly destroying the environment is one thing, but when you mess with Brooklyn’s craft beer, there will be Hell to pay.
