I always knew about the energy in beer because one hangover fart could clear a room

Since this is the Daily Fail, I now doubt that beer exists and am going to go jump off a bridge ...

Fine by me. Beer has become undrinkable swill since GlobalHyperMegaCorp began brewing every single brand on the planet.

Beer still exists. But it isn't being used to make butanol. You directly ferment butanol from various feedstocks, including the various grains and even some non-food plants, like switchgrass or sweet potatoes.

For butanol to become viable, it needs buy-in from a few fleet contracts that operate their own fueling stations.

Great. It's good to know that should gas be inconvenient I can pay $24 a gallon to throw Rogue Dead Guy in the tank.

Well you would still put it in your car, then crack the tank and have a good night until you are stranded....

Gas is cheaper than beer.

Just sayin

That article is the most robotic thing I have ever read, short of binary or assembly.  I weep for journalism.
