Brewing beer from the Chilean desert’s fog

The Atrapaneblina (fog catcher) brewery is an irresistible case of the human inventive spirit thumbing its nose at adversity. In Chile’s Atacama Desert, its crew is able to retrieve enough water from the fog to produce 6,300 gallons of beer per year. The process starts with special nets designed and tested since the 1950s by a physics professor who claims he’s been able to slow the expansion of the desert despite the chronic absence of rain. Wouldn’t a taste of this beer be worth the trip alone?
