Jack in the green

Color the Union Jack green for Earth Day (April 22nd).

And by that we note, and echo from their Web site, things that the British-themed Ship Inn is doing to step up to the Earth and eco-friendly plate …

These are all things the Ship has done over the past two years there in Milford. Not a bad list.

  • Switching to grass-fed beef and hormone-free/antibiotic-free chicken
  • Locally roasted, organic, fair-trade coffee
  • Sustainable, wild-caught fish
  • Composting vegetable and brewery refuse
  • Installation of energy efficient windows
  • Consolidation of refrigeration for less energy usage
  • Spent brewery grain goes to local cows
  • Addition of more vegetarian items to the menu
And the future of the Ship holds:
  • Procuring organic grain for our brewing
  • Purchasing locally pastured meats and locally grown vegetables
  • Adding a bicycle rack
