A group called Pittsfield Green Drinks gathers together once a month to discuss environmental issues over a pint or two. Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month at 5:15 p.m. in the Pittsfield Brew Works on Depot Street in Pittsfield, MA. No reservations are required, and there is no fee.
These events were started and are co-sponsored by the Center for Ecological Technology and the Berkshire Environmental Team (BEAT). Although the local Green Drinks is independent, it is loosely affiliated with an international network of similar gatherings (www.greendrinks.org) around the planet.
Each gathering is informal and no agendas are planned with topics coming up among the group. Those topics range from land-use and preservation, to recycling, solar power and other forms of alternative energy, to green building methods, pollution and other topics concerning the environment and sustainable living.
