Getting wasted

Oregon is Going to Try to Make Beer Out of Sewage Water

Sorry, Oregon, but you’re not being as creative as you think—National Bohemian has already been packaging sewage water as beer for decades.

The Oregon Environmental Quality Commission has just recently approved a proposal to attempt to use recycled sewage water to brew beer. The beer wouldn’t be served in bars, at least to start with; assuming efforts to turn sewage into delicious libations are successful, they’ll only initially be served at tasting events and other “water professional society functions.” This makes a lot of sense, as “pay me for this sewage beer” (as such an attempt would no doubt be initially painted) is a marketing strategy roughly on par with “give me money and I will punch you directly in the genitals” and “who wants to pay to listen to me having a particularly disagreeable bowel movement?” I’m sure water professionals throw some crazy keggers, too, so this should be exciting for them.
