Beer Made From Recycled Toilet Water Wins Admirers in Singapore

  • Local brewer makes ale with water from treatment plants
  • Nation’s utility uses it to educate people about recycling

“NEWBrew” is no ordinary beer. The new Singapore blond ale is made with recycled sewage.

The alcoholic beverage is a collaboration between the country’s national water agency, PUB, and local craft brewery Brewerkz. First unveiled at a water conference in 2018, NEWBrew went on sale in supermarkets and at Brewerkz outlets in April.
