We've all heard the expression, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” That's kind of what Joris Hoebe did.
His city, Amsterdam, has two problems.
First, the city loves beer and can’t seem to stop coming up with new brews.
Second, Amsterdam is 2 meters below sea level, so it floods easily. That means it has a problem with big rains.
Hoebe’s idea was to tackle the two challenges together.
A hobby brewer himself, Hoebe was working up some homebrew one evening when it started pouring outside.
