About the Brewing Showcase
During the first weekend of Canal Convergence—from 6–10 p.m. on Nov. 4 and 5—the event will incorporate a drought-friendly beer festival, featuring craft beers brewed with recycled water. In 2019, 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 numerous beers crafted by Valley breweries (listed below) and made from recycled water delivered directly from Scottsdale’s Advanced Water Treatment Plant.
The One Water Brewing Showcase will feature a few different beers, all made with ultra-purified, recycled water, each night. 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. Learn more about our efforts on the Sustainability page.
Canal Convergence and Scottsdale Water are proud to have the following breweries participating in the One Water Brewing Showcase. These breweries understand the importance of water sustainability and conservation—especially during this time of prolonged drought and water shortages. During a judging event on Friday, Oct. 28, a panel of six judges awarded the blue ribbon to a wet hop lager by Goldwater Brewing Co. and Four Peaks Brewing Company. Four different brews will be featured each night—four on Nov. 4, including the blue ribbon winner, and four on Nov. 5. Partnering breweries include:
Arizona Wilderness Brewing Company
