LANSING — The Great Lakes basin supplies breweries with some of the freshest water in the country. But if brewers like what they taste, some experts suggest they make some changes in how they use that water. “You can’t brew great beer without great water,” said Dave Engbers, co-founder of Founders Brewing Co. in Grand Rapids. Engbers was a featured speaker at a recent Great Lakes Water Conservation Conference in Grand Rapids.
