Most beer lovers want to keep their brewski out of the sun. But not the people at the Lucky Lab Brew Pub in Portland, Oregon. They make their beer with the sun. Solar power not only provides the heat needed for the brewing process, but also heats the hot water used for everything from the dishwasher to the restrooms. The Lucky Lab will have to sell a lot of pints to pay for the system. Pub co-owner Gary Geist says the solar technology cost about $70,000. But he says they hope to make up the money in energy savings.
