A Danish microbrewery located in Copenhagen, is now using human waste water to help brew their new “Pisner” beer, reports Reuters.
Nørrebro Bryghus claims they’re not using the urine in the actual brewing process; rather, they’re fertilizing their barley — which will eventually be utilized to brew the beer — with the waste water.
"When the news that we had started brewing the Pisner came out, a lot of people thought we were filtering the urine to put it directly in the beer,” said Henrik Vang, the chief executive of the brewery. “We had a good laugh about that."
The brewery has reportedly collected its supply of urine — all 50,000 liters of it — from the urinals of Denmark’s 2015 Roskilde Music Festival, which draws around 130,000 attendees per year. One of the concert-goers, Anders Sjögren, even sampled the finished product and claimed he couldn’t tell it was made with pee water.
"If it had tasted even a bit like urine, I would put it down, but you don't even notice," he said.
