No Water No Beer

No Water No Beer event 1.15d

Gabriel was a proud sponsor of the “No Water No Beer” event hosted by the Illinois Section of the American Water Works Association (ISAWWA) and Haymarket Pub & Brewery earlier this week.

          “90% of beer is water.  Without clean water, you can’t make great beer.”

This networking event kicked off ISAWWA’s new “No Water No Beer” initiative to bring together more than 75 people from the brewing industry, sustainability leaders, and water & wastewater engineering/consulting firms.  The evening offered an opportunity for representatives of these fields to discuss ideas to bring about better usage of water in the brewing industry.
