Very interesting article about Cold Spring Brewing production volume, and their impact on the underground wells they have been pulling their water from since 1874 (they used 114 million gallons of water in 2013). http://www.mprnews.org/story/2014/03/21/ground-level-beneath-the-surface-brewery IIRC, Brau Brothers had to move their operations in part due to water and/or wastewater constraints in Lucan. Definitely a different set of circumstances and specifics, but there are similarities. You don't necessarily appreciate the volume of production from some of these breweries until you realize they have the power to impact regional water resources. Hopefully Cold Spring is able to find a new source of water from the test wells they are digging.
