A toast to the 'Raining Champions'!
What better way to educate football fans about urgent water challenges and celebrate a phenomenal season for Manchester City than by toasting the club with a limited-edition beer brewed with purified rainwater from the Etihad Stadium?
To celebrate City’s epic Premier League title win, we’re excited to team up with Manchester City and Heineken Manchester to produce ‘Raining Champions’ – a bespoke beer made from purified rainwater collected on the rooftop of City’s home ground.
With Manchester averaging about 152 rainy days per year, challenges like water scarcity may seem a world away but the reality is that these issues are closer than we think.
A staggering 3.6 billion people – almost half the global population – currently live in areas that are water-scarce at least one month per year and, by 2050, projections estimate that more than 5 billion people could suffer water shortages. Recycled water is one long-term, sustainable solution to water scarcity.
The ‘Raining Champions’ beer was brewed using rainwater from the Etihad, purified with advanced, proven treatment technologies that produce safe clean drinking water to the highest standards.
Stay tuned to be in with a chance to taste the limited-edition brew at the start of the new season… details coming soon!
