San Diego brewery makes beer with SEWAGE water
Toilet to tap: California brewery makes beer with treated SEWAGE water… and curious customers describe the taste as ‘outstanding’
A Southern California brewery has successfully tested a beer using treated sewage water.
Stone Brewing, a large craft brewing operation headquartered in Escondido, presented its Full Circle Pale Ale to curious customers at an event Thursday in San Diego.
The new ale is made using recycled, treated sewage water and is part of San Diego’s plan, ‘Pure Water San Diego,’ to get a third of its water from recycled sources by 2021.
And the verdict for the brew, which some have dubbed ‘toilet to tap,’ seemed to be quite positive, SF Gate reported.
San Diego mayor Kevin Faulconer told the Times that the brew was ‘fantastic’ and added: ‘There’s no better way to highlight the purity of this water.’
Other patrons said the brew was ‘outstanding’ and ‘delicious.’
