The public water education programs at Discovery World are going to be expanded _ to include beer.

MillerCoors is providing $500,000 over five years to fund the MillerCoors THIRST Freshwater Innovation Lab.

It will feature a micro-scale brewery that will focus on the beer production process and water's role in brewing. It will also highlight water chemistry, microbiology and organisms, properties of water and water-based business and technology opportunities.

Museum President Joel Brennan says Discovery World already has adult classes on brewing, where people can brew and bottle their own beer.

The lab is expected to open in next spring.
