Drinking this type of beer may help the environment

Budweiser is going green!

OK, it's not happening tomorrow, but Anheuser-Busch InBev, the company behind Bud, Corona and Stella Artois has pledged all of its purchased electricity will come from renewable sources by 2025.

By 2025, popping open a Budweiser will mean you're doing something good for the environment. Well, sorta....

By doing so, AB InBev would reduce its carbon footprint by 30 percent, which is the equivalent of removing 500,000 cars from the road. Good job, Bud!

Wow, that's a lot of numbers. I think I need a beer.
