Repurposed wastewater is a constant area of interest for engineers who are aiming to solve the world's environmental concerns. In the case of one Milwaukee engineer, repurposed wastewater is not only good enough to consume but is also the main ingredient behind his custom wheat beer concoction.

Theera Ratarasarn's wheat beer is made using Milwaukee water that has been purified in a high-tech sewage treatment facility. The wastewater engineer's drink has been named "Activated Sludge Wheat Ale" and illustrates the versatility of wastewater and its potential as a future ingredient within the beverage industry.

Though many may squirm at the thought of consuming sewage-treated water, this beer proves that wastewater will inevitably become more common than we may expect.
