Beer lovers have a new option that favors the environment, although not necessarily the most demanding palates. Is about Newbrew beer, an original drink that is made with recycled wastewater.
Newbrew, the drink launched by Singapore’s state water agency and local craft brewer Brewerkz, contains about 95% clean, high-quality recycled wateralthough it maintains its flavor and appearance of a traditional light beer, according to the media in that country.
According to reports, Newbrew beer was launched for sale on April 8 and is part of the Singapore government’s efforts to promote the importance of water recycling and raise awareness among its citizens.
Manufacturers claim that the beer contains recycled water that complies with international safety standards and it is also clean enough to be used for the production of beverages for human consumption; as clean water is required in the manufacturing process so as not to contaminate the flavor of the malt, hops and yeast strains required in the brewing process.
It has been reported that beer it will be available until the end of June, in stores, restaurants and online; and its price ranges from 4.50 dollars per can.
The water used is disinfected with ultraviolet light and passed through advanced membranes to remove the contaminants it contains.
