Brewery Makes Algae Beer to Raise Water Quality Awareness

"While Maumee Bay Brewing's double IPA doesn't contain actual algae (just matcha powder for color and kiwi for taste), it was made to raise visibility of the drinking water quality of local Lake Erie. Three years ago, residents of nearby Toledo, Ohio woke up and were unable to drink the lake's water, as a toxic algae bloom was sitting on top of the water intake. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published a report last month that showed the issue is still making people sick." - Excerpt from Men's Journal.
