August is beer month at HuffPost Green. So first question: how green is the beer you drink? Well, if you drink a Fat Tire or a Sierra Nevada then you're on the right path. These eight breweries lead the pack when it comes to sustainable businesses and their beers are delicious to boot. So sit back, relax and enjoy these beers this summer. Vote for who you think is the green leader and nominate your favorite microbrew or green-leaning beer.

New Belgium Brewery, Fort Collins, Colorado
 
This brewery consistently tops brewery lists across the country and there's a good reason why. The company uses renewable wind energy, preventing 8 million pounds of coal from being burned (employees volunteered to pay for the switch), it recycles waste products, uses sustainable lighting and hosts the annual Tour de Fat, a philanthropic bike festival that promotes biking as a viable form of transport.
