A new microbrewery has opened in Batroun, a picturesque small town on the Lebanese coast.
Even more cool is that the brewery building is built of recycled material: walls made of recycled wood crates and melted down plastic turned into wall panels – the equivalent of 2 million plastic bags. It is a technology pioneered by the local firm Cedar Environmental, headed by Lebanese engineer Ziad Abichaker.
There are also tables made of old telephone wire spools, grass planted with organic recycled fertilizer. The new beer is called Colonel, and a restaurant is set to open in the space.
