Sales of Organic Beers Start to Hop – Forbes.com
Organic beer is made the same way as any beer, but under U.S. Department of Agriculture standards at least 95 percent of its ingredients – usually barley and hops – are grown without the use of chemicals and pesticides.

Organic beer sales increased 40 percent in 2005, tying it with organic coffee as the fastest-growing organic beverage, the Organic Trade Association says. By comparison, overall U.S. beer sales fell slightly last year.

Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy – Benjamin Franklin
I just drank an EEL RIVER IPA, organic 7%abv., this from Fortuna California. I limit myself to one beer an evening, because at my weight, 158lbs, my perfect intake is exactly a pint. Although this Eel River is 12oz, the full taste and 7% alcohol would be cloying if 24oz
were consumed. Equal to organic beer is unpasteurized beer that needs to be refrigerated until consumption; check brewing dates
and also this site: http://hopsinhumboldt.com/
Because I limited myself to 12oz, it is permitted to sample an organic wine w./ dinner.
