Beer is mostly water, so the quality of a brewery’s source water affects the finished product. Recognizing the need for clean, pollution-free water, NRDC’s Brewers for Clean Water campaign helps member breweries advocate for federal safeguards to protect their water sources from upstream pollution—and keep waterways clean for downstream neighbors. Now with over 115 members, the campaign advocates for the protection of the Clean Water Act and other critical water protections. Together, the campaign’s members are working to protect drinking water sources for millions of Americans—and ensure continued access to the clean water that supports their livelihoods.
