Beer Made From Sewage Water Debuts In Sweden

The beer world can definitely get a little weird. We’ve reported on beer brewed with ramen, fried chicken and even marshmallow peeps all in the past year. And while we shouldn’t exactly be surprised when a brewery starts crafting something a bit off, at least this time they’re doing it to make a statement instead of capitalizing on a strange novelty ingredient.

Swedish brewery Nya Carnegiebryggeriet, in partnership with the Swedish Environmental Research Institute (IVL), released a pilsner last week that’s brewed with recycled wastewater. The beer is called PU:REST, and the goal is to raise awareness for sustainable, safe drinking water for all.

It’s only available in Sweden for now, but since we’ve seen this stateside once before, keep your eyes open. In early 2017, San Diego’s Stone Brewing released a limited amount of a recycled-water pale ale called Full Circle.

Perhaps the Swedish brewers and the Australian distiller making spirits out of wine from spit buckets should be friends.
