  BIG NEWS IN BREWS


The Budweiser brewery, with its two enormous windmills producing some 30 percent of the brewery’s energy needs, is a familiar sight to anyone traveling west of Fairfield, California, a town best known as the home of Travis Air Force Base and the Budweiser plant, on Highway I-80 near the truck scales. What’s new is the 12-pack of equally enormous fermenters now proudly erect in front of the big red Budweiser sign. Tall conical fermenters for a lager house? They have a plan.
