We received a request from Cari at The Village Pourhouse asking us to attend their Go Green Event.

This will be an outside event meaning an organizer will not be there and it's not an official MNYCEM Event but you can RSVP here if you'd like to find others to go with. If someone would like to volunteer to be the organizer for this event please let me know.

From The Village Pourhouse website:

The Village Pourhouse, New York City?s Best New Beer Bar, takes its commitment to a cleaner environment seriously. As of July 1st, 2007, The Village Pourhouse has implemented the following initiatives to lessen its impact on the environment:

The use of Enviro-Solutions Certified Green cleaning supplies, such as:

Stainless Steel Kitchen Cleaner
Neutral Floor Cleaner
Spray and Wipe Cleaner
Glass Cleaner
Sanitizer Spray for tables
The use of recycled paper products and to go containers, including:

Toilet paper that is 100 percent recycled
To go containers are made of at least 50% recycled aluminum
Recycled Eco-Soft paper towels
Recycled paper napkins
All used cardboard is recycled
All beer bottles are recycled
All uniforms and linens are washed in-house, rather than picked up by a service (therefore lessening auto emissions from pick up and delivery)
The kitchen uses zero trans fat oil. After use, the oil is sent to a plant to be made into other products (reusable waste)

The bar has added Earth Chardonnay, an organic wine to the wine list

The bar has added 360 Vodka to their spirits list (eco-friendly Vodka)

The bar currently sells the following organic beers, all of which will be in a flight:
Orlio Organic Common Ale
Orlio Organic IPA
Wolavers Pale
Wolavers Brown
Wolavers IPA
Wolavers Wit Bier

Also, please join us on July 25th for a night of environmental awareness including organic beers, organic light appetizers and product giveaways all night long. Christina Salvi, Recycling Outreach Coordinator for the borough of Manhattan, will be on hand to discuss the how-to?s of recycling and a representative from Union Beer will join us to talk about Organic Beers.


$25 per person includes your choice of two organic beers and light appetizers. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Nature Conservancy?s Young Professionals Group. Their goal in New York is to ensure that the next generation of New Yorkers learn about and participate in conservation activities at a local, regional and global level.
