About the Brewing Showcase

During the first weekend of Canal Convergence—from 4:00–10:00 p.m. on November 8 and 9— the event will host the world’s first beer festival featuring only craft beers brewed with recycled water. Earlier this year, Scottsdale Water became the first water agency in Arizona permitted to treat recycled water for potable use. The One Water Brewing Showcase at Canal Convergence will spotlight 10 beers crafted by 11 Valley breweries (listed below). Each of the brews will be made from recycled water delivered directly from Scottsdale’s Advanced Water Treatment Plant. The One Water Brewing Showcase is free to attend and will feature five beers each night. Guests will be able to purchase individual, full-size draft beers or sampler flights to taste all five. The showcase is part of Canal Convergence’s sustainability efforts as we promote resource conservation and pursue our goal of becoming a zero-waste event.
