A Colorado microbrewery is hoping to maintain their flavor without sacrificing quality.
The makers of Fat Tire Beer say they will continue monitoring the water used to make their brew, checking for residue from the High Park Fire.
New Belgium Brewery, the makers of Fat Tire brand, is getting its water from the City of Fort Collins. They were using a reserve water supply that is untainted by runoff from the fire.
Makers have identified six compounds in the water from the Poudre River that could affect the flavor of the beer.
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.
