The average beer is more than 90 percent water, and the characteristics of the local water supply, like the pH, mineral content, and purity, are central to the quality of each brew. Lake Auburn is one of the cleanest sources of drinking water in the country—so clean that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has granted the Auburn Water District and City of Lewiston Water Division a waiver from filtration. This allows the two agencies to keep costs down for their customers. But to keep this waiver, the water quality must remain exceptional.
The Maine Brewshed Alliance and Lake Auburn Watershed Protection Commission will be there to talk more about the importance of clean water in the brewing process, efforts to keep our water clean, and how you can be involved.
