The bar serves mostly draft beers, which helps reduce the impact caused by Trans Atlantic shipping as well as excess waste caused by bottles and cans. The electricity comes from windmill farms and 95 percent of its staff lives within walking distance, which helps reduce pollution and carbon print. Perhaps the best part is that the Meridian Pint also features self-serve taps at each table. Enjoy specials on beers from the team’s hometowns.
