From Toilet to Tap

Yep, you read that right. Escondido-based Stone Brewing recently released Full Circle Pale Ale, a new craft beer made with… wait for it… treated wastewater.
In partnership with San Diego’s Pure Water Facility, Stone brewed five barrels of the beer to help show that once-upon-a-time sewage water can be made clean enough to drink. Pure Water’s goal is to eventually provide one-third of the city’s water supply from treated wastewater – yep, we can blame the drought for that idea.
Full Circle isn’t available for sale yet, but Stone hopes to start doing so soon. Maybe it will be available the next time I’m back home in San Diego? Don’t worry guys, I’ll try to bring some back to Boston with me.
