Employees at the New Belgium Brewery say the company has been using a reserve water supply in Larimer County after the water in the Poudre River was tainted by the wildfire.
They have been told they will have to go back to using the Poudre soon. If that's the case, the water would kill the flavor in their beer and make it undrinkable, the company says.
New Belgium is working with the City of Fort Collins to continue using the water reserve.
