Attn Beer Drinkers, Would you drink this beer?

Caught a news piece this PM on TV regarding a new method of brewing beer by a Munich brewery.

Ever see the sign, usually posted in a drinking establishment's men's room, saying "you don't buy beer here you only rent it"?

This company is doing their part to make this a true statement.

Reuse Brew-----brewed using sewer water

They claim you can't tell it's not regular drinking water but after they advertise where it comes from??????

If you use water in LA Calif. You have probably used water blended with treated sewage, Closer to my home Clovis CA also blends reclaimed water.
I don't care how well treated they say it is I'm not using it. DR

Keep in mind there is nothing new under the sun including water. Every drop on earth has always been here and the vast majority his been passed through one critter or another. It’s all part of the giant circle of life on planet earth. They are jus accelerating the process

A survival water maker can do it in minutes. Doesn’t scare or surprise me at all

I would drink it if it were offered to me at someone’s home, picnic, event, etc.

I would not seek it out for myself or purchase it to offer to a guest. Mostly because there are already so many good beers out there. Especially in a place like Munich.

Nope, I'm good!

But doesn't most water, unless you're watching the snow melt into a creek, come from sewer water? Just obviously filtered snd treated.

I hate to break it to you but I'd guess that all water has been wastewater at some point in history. It all gets recycled around eventually.

The company I work for actually specializes in wastewater treatment.

How much single use water do you think is up on the space station???
Water purifiers have been around for a long time. It's just that they are finally cheap and reliable enough to move to common use.

When I studied Environmental Engineering up in Vermont, I learned that recycled waste water was used for the snow machines. Ski Vermont! Where the 'effluent' meets the 'affluent'!

Just the idea I would say no but..........................


Then to go a step further in the 1960s the U o I had a research project to use treated sewage sludge from Chicago on corn fields. Never heard where the project went. Dad headed it at the site for a couple of years. Then he got a better offer teaching AG at the Joliet Junior College.......

We have come a long way and I do drink from a creek now and then

Milorganite, straight from Milwaukee to your lawn. You may have been rolling in it for decades.

Water is the ultimate recycled material.

Treated sludge has been used on crop fields for a very long time now. I wouldn't consider drinking ANY open body of water without filtering it first with a very fine filter capable of catching giardia cysts (which are 7-10 microns), no matter how nice the water 'looks'. I don't think there is an unpolluted body of water anywhere in the US anymore.

Along that line I once heard that all drinking water in New Orleans has previously passed through numerous digestive tracts up the Mississippi River.

Also worth considering, the antiviral/bacterial qualities of Ethanol in Beer/Wine/Distilled Spirits. If one drinks enough of these there's a good chance they don't care where the water has been before.��

I'm a bourbon drinker so I might try this. I actually saw this show and it was hilarious.

Take the high road. It's usually less muddy.

While not appealing as a beer drinker, I remind myself that the men and women aboard the International Space Station (ISS) are drinking "reclaimed water" over and over and over and over.....
