Paper over Plastic [Straws]

Paper over Plastic [Straws]

The movement to end the use of plastic straws has been heavy on the forefront of national attention lately. From cities like Seattle banning plastic straws completely, to large scale chains like Starbucks, American Airlines and Marriott Hotels getting on board, the topic has been thrust into headlines for the past few months. The effort to phase out the use of plastic straws circles back to a single underlying issue — the devastating impact plastic has as it drifts out to our oceans. Plastic simply doesn’t recycle as easily as other products, like paper, which is why paper straws are beginning to replace the classic plastic straw in many restaurants and establishments.

Motor Supply x Cottontown Brew Lab

Motor Supply x Cottontown Brew Lab

Last October the Motor Supply team selected a single batch barrel of Russels Reserve from Wild Turkey to be used as the house bourbon for Head Barman Josh Streetman’s cocktail program. The bourbon was a hit among customers — Motor Supply went through the equivalent of 175 bottles of the 11-year-old whiskey in 4 short months. The team knew that the special bourbon barrel had a longer lifespan, and in an effort to preserve every last bit the team decided to repurpose its use. “We wanted to repurpose the old barrel after its initial use to show customers the livelihood and longevity of it” said Josh. That’s how a collaboration with our friends from local brewery, Cottontown Brew Lab, was born.
