Local Breweries: Show Your Support 

Dozens of local breweries rely on PWD water to produce their outstanding draughts. The breweries listed below had committed to participating in our original 2020 Drinking Water Week plans which were later cancelled due to the pandemic. Raise a glass – it’s 90% water – and support these local businesses. Many offer delivery or curbside pick-up services for beer, other beverages, snacks, and necessities like toilet paper, as well as gift cards.
