This beer tastes like sh!t

San Diego’s Stone Brewing is crafting a new beer, Full Circle Pale Ale, with a particular type of water: treated sewage water. The decision to use water that “comes from the toilet” has been heralded as a ground-breaking move in environmentally-conscious San Diego. Surprisingly, it’s not a dark lager or stout as I initially pictured it to be and while significant ecological street cred will follow, I guess it’s just another of those drinks you have to pinch your nose, wince, and guzzle down. “Caramel notes” will never be the same and, with that in mind, here’s to hoping we get our hands on one the next time around. Hopefully, the alcohol content kills whatever microbes are still lurking.
