I'd had a mead made with rain water before, but beer made with treated treated sewage water was a first.

Btw, some of these commercial beers that used recycled water are on tap around AZ.

And I heard that if you want to use the "Pure Water" used to make those beers, I think it's available to homebrewers if you contact the Pima County Southwest Water Campus team.

Treated Sewage Water Beer

Local club is doing this with a purification company.  Brewing a bunch of beers and serving at an event. Not sure the source water, but the treated water was over 50ppm dissolved solids. That makes me a bit suspicious.
