MillerCoors Gives $500,000 for Freshwater Innovation Lab

Discovery World's water education programs are set to receive $500,000 from MillerCoors to fund a Freshwater Innovation Lab. The Associated Press reports that the lab will feature a micro-scale brewery that will focus on the beer production process and water's role in brewing.

It will also highlight water chemistry, microbiology and organisms, properties of water and water-based business and technology opportunities.

Museum President Joel Brennan says Discovery World already has adult classes on brewing, where people can brew and bottle their own beer.
The lab is expected to open in next spring.

What do you think of MillerCoor's foray into the water sustainability sphere? Are we to hear of more brewers following suit?
