Save the Planet - Drink Organic

That's the slogan of the Black Isle Brewery, an organic microbrewery located on (unsurprisingly) the Black Isle, near Inverness in Scotland.

So I'm currently trying to save the world by drinking their Goldeneye ale, which is a delicious golden ale with quite a floral taste.

Like a few other Black Isle beers, the Goldeneye is named after a bird, in this case the beautiful goldeneye duck

Obviously, you can't save the world just by drinking a couple of bottles of organic beer, but it is a step in the right direction.

I'll have to persuade Mr GP to give this a try. He goes in for Brewdog at the moment.

Hmm. Some of my family members would certainly think this is a good reason to visit Scotland.

It's tough being an environmental reporter Juliet.

I must keep my eye open for this one - I've tried some of their other beer and it seems very acceptable.

It's such hard work saving the planet sometimes isn't it? But somebody's got to do it I guess, so pass me a beer!

Cheers to saving the world, one beer at a time. We can't drink that beer here in Canada as it isn't available, however we do hoist a few from our own local microbrewery, saving the world a beer at a time. Good for us all.

Greenpatches - Brewdog do some excellent beers...

Naquillity - indeed!

Bunnits - well certainly combined with our scenery, the beers could make an excellent focus for a Scottish tour

Sandy - I thought you'd tried all the real ales in Scotland already!

Lucy - it's always nice to find enjoyable ways to save the planet!

Gillena - thanks!

Carol - I'd say everyone should aim to drink the beers from their local microbreweries, support local businesses! I tend to drink beer from Scotland and the north of England.
