SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – Stone Brewing is breaking new ground by becoming the first to try making beer using water that “comes from the toilet.”
On Thursday, at the Stone Brewing location at Liberty Station, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer was among the first to drink the Full Circle Pale Ale.
Stone Brewing Senior Manager of Brewing and Innovation Steve Gonzalez created the beer that uses recycled water, and it ended up being one of his favorites.
He was skeptical, at first, to brew it with recycled water from the Pure Water San Diego program. Now, Gonzalez said, “Among the pale ales that I’ve made, it’s probably in the top three.”
After taking a drink, Faulconer called the beer “delicious.”
