New Belgium Brewing, makers of Fat Tire Amber Ale, announced that it will remove cardboard partitions from 12-pack carriers in an effort to reduce its cardboard consumption. At current production levels, the move will eliminate 150 tons of cardboard from going into New Belgium packaging. Consumers will start seeing the new 12-packs after March 2009.
