Beer brewed from Chilean desert fog

The Atacama Desert in Chile is the driest non-polar desert in the world, and some parts of this desolate terrain have not seen a drop of rain in decades.

So it probably seems an unlikely place for a brewery. But in the heart of this parched landscape, in town of Pena Blanca, you can find reprieve from the heat with a beer from one of the most unique breweries in the world, reports Popular Science.

The Atrapaneblina (or “fog catcher”) brewery makes its beer from local water captured entirely from fog nets. According to its owner, the fog water gives the beer a taste and quality unlike any other on Earth.

Although the Atacama Desert does not see much rainfall, the region is often shrouded in a thick fog that locals call “camanchaca.” Moisture from this fog is pretty much the only lifeline for the flora that cling to existence here.
