Stone Brewing creates beer with recycled water - KGTV ABC10 San Diego

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Stone Brewing is breaking new ground by becoming the first to try making beer using water that "comes from the toilet."


This is part of the reason Stone has jumped the shark or whatever it is that craft beers do when they become too big, corporate, and image conscious. My second son put it perfectly when he said something utterly unrepeatable that involved the Stone gargoyle performing unnatural acts. But, for my money, their IPAs are still pretty yummy. I don't have an especially discriminating palate though. I hope they're not going to pour much money into this toilet water beer. Nobody's going to drink it, except their hipster market segment, which is not that large. A lot of beer is psychological, man.
