SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Recycled water was used to make Stone Brewing’s Full Circle Pale Ale - a pioneering effort that’s winning kudos for the City of San Diego.

San Diego partnered with Stone Brewing in 2017 to create the beer using advanced-treatment recycled water from the city’s Pure Water Demonstration Facility.

The limited-edition beer was served only at an event at the brewery’s Liberty Station restaurant on March 16, 2017, a day Mayor Kevin Faulconer proclaimed “Pure Stone Day” in San Diego. It is no longer available to the public.

Stone Brewing said on its website that the water used for Stone Full Circle Pale Ale was cleaner than regular tap water.

The Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) recognized the event with an Award of Excellence for Events and Observances, Seven or Fewer Days for Associations/Government/Nonprofit Organizations in New York on June 7.

“We are excited to be recognized for this national award,” said Vic Bianes, Director of the City’s Public Utilities Department. “Pure Water San Diego will deliver safe, reliable, drought-resistant water for all of San Diego. Being recognized for our innovative approach to engaging with our customers and sharing the Pure Water story is very rewarding. We are very proud to receive this award.”
