What’s the context?
A brewery in water-stressed Singapore is making beer from recycled sewage water. Is it any good?
Singapore is one of the most water-stressed countries in the world. One way they've addressed this is by recycling sewage water. They call it NEWater and it meets 40% of their water needs. A small portion is used as tap water.
Now the government has partnered with a local brewery to create a beer called NEWBrew, made from recycled drinking water. So how does it taste? And what can we learn from Singapore’s water recycling experiment?
