San Diego brewery creates beer from ‘toilet to tap’ recycled water

Confirming that one does not really “buy” beer, one just rents it.

The pure water program, which locals have nicknamed “toilet to tap,” is a system that, once completed, will put recycled wastewater back into the fresh water system instead of into the ocean. The system is expected to provide one-third of the city’s freshwater supply by 2035. Steve Gonzalez, Stone’s senior manager of brewing and innovation, said the recycled water is in some ways superior to the brewery’s current water supply, needing only the addition of some salts to be ideal for beer making.
