Listen to this article

Singapore is taking beer-making to a new level by turning urine and sewage into alcoholic beverages. It is currently advertised as the greenest beer.

Beer contains a lot of water, in fact, 90% of it is actually water. So  Singapore's water supply agency launched a new beer brand NewBrew that uses recycled and filtered water from sewage to use it for making the beverage. 

The company also claims that NewBrew's key ingredient is NEWater, a purified liquid made of sewage that’s been around for almost 20 years. “NeWater goes through stringent tests, several rounds of filtration, making it safe to drink."

Singapore's water agency has launched the drink, which is available in shops and bars, to raise awareness of the country's water scarcity issues and the innovative solutions it's come up with to solve those problems. Singapore faces water scarcity challenges and this is one of the creative ways it has devised to address them.
