Costa Rica’s Imperial is world’s ‘water positive’ beer
Imperial is Costa Rica’s best selling beer brand. But now, it has another claim to fame: Back in March, Imperial was certified as the first beer in the world to be “water positive,” meaning the brewer contributes more water to the environment than it uses.
Seeing as beer is about 90 percent water to begin with, reaching “water positive” status isn’t easy. The first step was using less water in the production process. However, the biggest step towards hitting the water positive goal was getting involved in a number of large community water projects focusing on recycling and conservation.
