August 31, 2009 RainHarvest Systems has partnered with 5 Seasons Brewery to produce beer made entirely from on-site captured rainwater. RainHarvest Systems, an expert in rainwater catchment systems, and 5 Seasons Restaurant and Brewery, Atlanta’s premier micro brewery, both believe this to be the first micro brewed beer to be made entirely with rainwater in the United States.
“We are extremely excited with our new partnership with 5 Seasons Brewery,” says Randy Kauk, President of RainHarvest Systems. “We believe it uniquely demonstrates the broad array of applications where rainwater can be used instead of chemically treated, drinking water; plus it is a great way to create public awareness of rainwater harvesting”, continues Randy.
As part of the partnership, 5 Seasons Brewery is creating a beer to be used by RainHarvest Systems for publicity events intended to promote awareness of rainwater catchment. The first event will occur on September 14th, 2009 at 7PM at The Decatur Square in Decatur, Georgia, during the National Conference for the American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association (ARCSA). The ARCSA event will host rainwater vendors and public dignitaries from around the country sampling this latest brew.
