The Monday Morning Throwback – Air conditioner beers

Just last year, we came across a story about a brewery in San Diego that was using the condensation from all the air conditioners at the San Diego International Airport to brew a beer.

They would take the condensation, purify it, filter it, and brewed two new beers:

Hoppy Travels IPA & Pre-Flight Pils

According to Untappd, Hoppy Travels IPA is a West Coast IPA with flavors of grapefruit and guava and Pre-Flight Pils is a German-style pilsner with bready and lemon zest flavors.

Needless to say, if you’re looking to try either of these, you’ll need to visit East Village Brewing in San Diego, and they may be on tap at the San Diego International Airport‘s Terminal 2.
