You sure lad? For some of you folks normal beer is already an acquired taste, but this... this beer definitely is. You understand that this stuff is brewed with water from the devil's choke? You know, that vile spring right behind the abbey?

This question is a spin-off to this question about the topography in the below map. Please refer to it for general questions or observations about the map & area.
This spin-off is about the peat bog in the I3 to J5 area (the square denoted by these corners), and the spring at I5; regarding the process 'enriching' the spring-water with sulphur up to a degree where it needs to be filtered to be consumable.
From reading this article on sulphur in peat bogs and other lay-man's research, I understand that peat bogs are areas where sulphur is filtered from the surroundings and deposited.
I imagine that precipitation collects from the hills around and drains into the bog, from which it sips into lower strata where it meets rock and gets eventually pushed out of the cliff-side in I5.
My hopes are, that the water, when seeping through the bog, can be 'enriched' with sulphur by some sort of process, but I do not understand enough about biology to know of any such process - or if this is even impossible.

Q: Can my peat-bog-spring-idea result in water enriched with sulphur to a degree that it needs to be filtered?
A good answer should at least address the following topics:
- What circumstances are necessary for this to happen?
- If this cannot work, what alternative process could provide the desired result?
In addition it would be amazing if an answer could delve into the science:
- How does the process of 'enriching' the water work?
- What compounds are involved?
