Enter NEWBrew – a unique craft beer made using NEWater, Singapore’s own brand of ultra-high grade recycled water. For a second time, national water agency PUB has collaborated with Brewerkz, Singapore’s longest-running local craft brewery, to serve NEWBrew at Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) 2022 from 17 to 21 April. A limited quantity will also be available for public sale.​​<br><br>​<br></div><div>​ <b>Uniquely Singapore beer with premium ingredients​<br><br></b></div><div style="width:3%;float:left;"> <span style="line-height:30px;font-size:18px;">2.</span> </div><div style="width:97%;float:left;"><span style="line-height:30px;font-size:18px;">At its debut during SIWW 2018, NEWBrew – with its special taste profile and clean, ultra-crisp finish – proved an irresistible hit with local and international delegates who attended the event. This time, Brewerkz has upped the ante with the 2022 version: a Tropical Blonde Ale made using the finest ingredients, including premium German barley malts, aromatic citra and calypso hops, as well as kveik, a highly-sought after strain of farm-house yeast from Norway. The result – a highly quaffable beer suitable for Singapore’s tropical climate, with a smooth, toasted honey-like aftertaste. NEWater makes up about 95 per cent of the beer.​​</span><br>​<br></div>​​ <div style="width:3%;float:left;"> <span style="line-height:30px;font-size:18px;">3.</span> </div><div style="width:97%;float:left;"> <span style="line-height:30px;font-size:18px;">​The public will also get a chance to try the limited-edition NEWBrew, as it will be made available for sale from 12 April to end July at supermarket chains NTUC FairPrice and Cold Storage, as well as online platforms and Brewerkz’s restaurants and e-store. The beer will be sold in packs of three cans, priced at $4.50 per can.​</span><br>​<br></div><div style="width:100%;overflow:hidden;"><div style="width:3%;float:left;"> <span style="line-height:30px;font-size:18px;">​4​.</span> </div><div style="width:97%;float:left;"> <span style="line-height:30px;font-size:18px;">Each of the three NEWBrew cans sports a different design that features vibrant artwork showcasing the Marina Barrage, MacRitchie Reservoir and the Singapore River – three iconic local water landmarks that contribute to Singapore’s water sustainability efforts and are also well-loved spots for leisure and to enjoy nature.​​</span><br><br><br>​<br></div></div><div> <b>NEWater – a pillar of water sustainability​​<br><br></b></div><div style="width:100%;overflow:hidden;"><div style="width:3%;float:left;"> <span style="line-height:30px;font-size:18px;">5.</span> </div><div style="width:97%;float:left;"><span style="line-height:30px;font-size:18px;">S​ince NEWBrew's debut, creating sustainable beer from recycled used water has grown in popularity, with water utilities in countries including Germany, Canada and the US perfecting their own versions. It is also an opportunity to cast the spotlight on water sustainability, with climate change impacts such as droughts and floods threatening the world's freshwater supply.​​</span>​<br>​<br></div>​<br><br>​<br><br>​<br></div><div style="width:100%;overflow:hidden;"><div style="width:3%;float:left;"> <span style="line-height:30px;font-size:18px;">6.</span> </div><div style="width:97%;float:left;"> <span style="line-height:30px;font-size:18px;">NEWater was introduced by PUB in 2002, when more than 60,000 Singaporeans came together for a toast during a memorable National Day Parade.

We are delighted to partner Brewerkz to bring NEWBrew back again, as it is also part of PUB’s efforts to educate Singaporeans on the importance of water recycling and reuse as a strategy to achieve water sustainability. It also reinforces the message that NEWater is perfectly wholesome and safe for drinking, and can also be used to make a great tasting beer," says Mr Ryan Yuen, Managing Director of SIWW.​​</span></div>​<br><br>​<br><br>​<br></div>​ <div style="width:100%;overflow:hidden;"><div style="width:3%;float:left;"> <span style="line-height:30px;font-size:18px;">8.</span> </div><div style="width:97%;float:left;"> <span style="line-height:30px;font-size:18px;">"We are proud to partner PUB once again to bring NEWBrew back to SIWW.
