A famous brewery, Stone Brewing, in San Diego is using treated sewage water to produce beer as part of San Diego’s plan, ‘Pure Water San Diego’. The city aims to get a third of its water from recycled sources by 2021. The review for the beer has hitherto been quite positive.
San Diego mayor Kevin Faulconer said that the brew was ‘fantastic’ and added, “There’s no better way to highlight the purity of this water.”
The beer was created by Steve Gonzalez, Stone Brewing’s senior manager of brewing and innovation. It was made with three malts and three hops and has ‘caramel’ and ‘tropical fruit’ notes.
