Colorado Health Dept. fines Coors.

The Colorado Department of Health has fined Adolph Coors Co. $1.05 million for air pollution violations. The state says the fine is based on nearly 200 violations of air pollution standards caused by "evaporation of alcohol from beer," including beer that is spilled during brewing and packaging.

Coors says it will appeal the fine. "It's hard to comprehend how evaporating beer can warrant such a penalty," said John Schallenkamp, Coors's environmental director.

Colorado has also filed a complaint against the Anheuser-Busch brewery in Fort Collins for similar violations.
