I can't remember who it was. Palmer? Papazian? Talking about AG they said if the water tastes good then just brew with it. If you don't like your tap water then buy spring water and brew with that. It may not be perfect for a dry stout or Bo pils but it will work.

Almost any water will 'work' for brewing. Its when a brewer is trying to make a better beer that the intricacies of brewing water chemistry rear their head.
