Singapore launches beer made from urine
In an eco-friendly effort, a brewery in Singapore uses urine and wastewater to make beer. This NewBrew beer tastes like regular beer.
This unique craft beer is produced using “Newater”, Singapore’s brand of clean, high-quality water that is recycled from urine and wastewater, according to BBC and NDTV news agencies. About 95% of NewBrew beer is made with Newater, which not only complies with standards international about safe drinking water that is clean enough to brew beer.
With a delicious honey-like aftertaste, the recycled beer is made with the finest ingredients such as premium German barley malt, Citra and Calypso aromatic hops as well as kveik – a Norwegian yeast. .
According to the StraitsTimes, national water authority PUB and local craft brewery Brewerkz launched NewBrew beer on April 8 to celebrate Singapore International Water Week (SIWW).
Newater recycled water does not spoil the flavors of the malt, hops and yeast strains, which are carefully controlled by the brewery in the craft beer production process.
With the aim of raising awareness about water recycling and reuse, NewBrew could be Singapore’s “greenest beer,” said Ryan Yuen, an executive at SIWW. And that, Singapore’s water authority has found a way to solve the water crisis by launching this drink to raise awareness about water scarcity in Singapore.
NewBrew isn’t the first beer to be made from recycled water.
After the news about NewBrew was announced, netizens had mixed reactions. Some people were shocked, some commented that before giving someone for free, the giver should try it first.
