Singapore: Beer made of urine?

Yes, you heard it right.

In an unconventional innovation in beer-brewing, ‘Newbrew’ is the latest drink introduced in Singapore, ANI reports.

The brewery makes beer using ‘Newater,’ a Singapore brand of clean, high-quality water recycled from sewage and urine.

The sewage-recycled beer, which has a smooth toasted honey-like aftertaste, is made using ingredients like premium German barley malts, aromatic Citra and Calypso hops and kveik — a highly sought-after strain of farm-house yeast from Norway.

About 95% of Newbrew is made of Newater, which adheres to international standards of safe drinking water and is tested clean to use for brewing beer.

Newbrew was launched on April 8 by national water agency PUB and local craft beer brewery ‘Brewerkz,’ at Singapore International Water Week, The Straits Times reported.

SIWW managing director Ryan Yuen claimed that Newbrew is Singapore’s ‘greenest beer’.

The country’s water agency, which has been promoting awareness for water recycling and reusing, launched Newbrew to create awareness about Singapore’s water scarcity.

The brewery clarified Newater does not contaminate the flavours of malt, hops and yeast strains which are carefully controlled in the production of craft beer.
