Canada’s Quidi Vidi Brewery makes its signature Iceberg Beer using a rare ingredient: glacial water harvested from the 25,000-year-old icebergs from Newfoundland.

Canada’s only professional iceberg harvester, Ed Kean leads a crew out to the waters around Random Island to harvest the glacier; the water from the glacier is the purest water on earth. Iceberg water has less than eight parts per million of impurities—in mainland Canada, the minimum of tap water is 150 parts per million. The resulting lager is brewed with Canadian two-row malt and packaged in distinctive blue bottles.
