    Hops, barley and now you can add sun to the ingredients used to make one of the most popular beers in America.

    Today, the Anheuser-Busch Brewery in Fairfield officially flips the switch on a solar energy system that will help generate electricity to make Budweiser beer.

    Being Earth-friendly is not a new game for the company. They've been recycling their own waste since way back in the late 1880s. Last year, they recycled almost 200 million pounds of material like scrap aluminum and metal, glass, cardboard, wood, brewing grain, beechwood chips, stretch wrap and labels, electronic equipment and batteries.

    Today's move is just the latest example of how California is leading the way in developing alternative energy sources to create products, in this case "green" beer.
