Brewing showcase highlights
Scottsdale purifying process
Staff Reports | Digital Free Press
Scottsdale Water is hosting the One Water Brewing Showcase — a one-of-a-kind event featuring beer made exclusively with ultra-purified, recycled water, city officials report — on Nov. 4 and 5.
The event will take place at the Scottsdale Waterfront during Canal Convergence and is free to the public. Attendees 21 and over can purchase a sample pack that includes samples of each of the night’s beers made with the ultra-purified water. Souvenir sample mugs will also be provided to paying attendees.
Scottsdale Water officials report the department is excited to partner with several local breweries to bring this fun, educational event to the community. Participating local breweries include:
• AZ Wilderness Brewing Co.
• Desert Monks Brewing Co.
• Fate Brewing Co.
• Four Peaks Brewing Co.
• Goldwater Brewing Co.
• North Mountain Brewing
• O.H.S.O. Brewery
• Uncle Bear’s Brewery
• Walter Station Brewery
Participating breweries received a delivery of ultra-purified, recycled water from Scottsdale’s Advanced Water Treatment Facility, which is the only permitted facility in Arizona to offer this water resource for sampling purposes. After recycled water is treated to A+ standard, it undergoes several more purifying processes: ozonation, membrane ultrafiltration, reverse osmosis, and ultraviolet photolysis. The final product results in a water quality that exceeds that of bottled water.
The goal is to use this water source as a viable new water resource within the community in the near future — pending state approval, city officials say.
