Good episode? Give it some love!
On today's show, we explore the science and art of brewing beer through the reuse of safely treated wastewater. The University of Calgary and its Advancing Canadian Wastewater Assets (ACWA) program teamed up with Village Brewery in Calgary and Xylem to create a batch of blonde ale, made possible with advanced water treatment technologies from Xylem. Guests Christine O’Grady of the University of Calgary, Jackson Stuart of Village Brewery, and Stephen Rothwell and Kevin Flis of Xylem discuss how the partnership came to be, the beer they developed, how it can be used to help change perceptions of reuse water, and more.
