FORT COLLINS, Colo. ‚?? The maker of Fat Tire beer says it‚??s using a reserve water supply because the water in northern Colorado‚??s Poudre River is tainted by a wildfire that destroyed hundreds of homes in June.
New Belgium Brewery objected when it was told it will soon have to go back to using water from the river. The company says if that happens, it would kill the flavor in the beer and make it undrinkable.
According to KUSA-TV, the brewery is working with Fort Collins to continue using the water reserve.
The High Park Fire west of Fort Collins was one of the most destructive in Colorado history. It burned more than 250 homes, killed one person and scorched 136 square miles of mountain terrain.
