The worlds first beer pipeline has opened in Bruges Belgium.



It's no longer a fantasy in the Belgian city of Bruges, where the world's first beer pipeline opened last week.
The two-mile pipe connects the Halve Maan brewery in the city's historic center with a bottling plant in the suburbs.
It's a practical solution to the logistical nightmare of having trucks thundering daily through the narrow cobbled streets of a medieval town, the brewery said.
The old town of Bruges is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Halve Maan is one of the fastest growing breweries in Belgium, and the traffic it was generating was becoming unsustainable.




What an awesome idea, this needs to be implemented everywhere ASAP. I want it piped right to my fridge. I would be willing to pay a handsome monthly fee for this service.

Leave it to Belgium to come up with this. Tennessee will probably have the first one for whiskey.

We have a local brewery that dug a tunnel underneath the street, now everytime I drive over that spot, I know the bottles are racing across the street down there. But a beer pipeline crossing the city, I can´t imagine the bureaucratic nightmare, let alone lunatics trying to tap that thing.




The pipeline is 3,276 meters (2 miles) long, and runs 34 meters (111 feet) below the surface at its deepest point. It passes under the town's historic canals and ramparts. Roughly 4,000 liters of beer, enough to fill 12,000 bottles, flows through the pipeline in an hour.


Imagine what happens if the pipe breaks at some point in time (it will, eventually)...

Damn, so no chance of any crazy drunks popping it open and playing in it like a fire hydrant. That would be a sight lol.

How awesome would a beer hydrant be? It just sounds so American.

You know, it has to come out of the earth somewhere

It would be a foam party for sure... Ever opened(hammered in the valve) a beer barrel the wrong way?
But this one is pressurized...

Correct, but:



The old town of Bruges is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Halve Maan is one of the fastest growing breweries in Belgium, and the traffic it was generating was becoming unsustainable.


and the pipeline will need service now and then and probably extra personel to operate. Building this thing gave work for people, too. The benefits clearly outweight in this situation because the old town roads are not made for that frequent heavy traffic, too.

I can see it now . . .

News conference in 7 yrs: "Well after 923 vandalism episodes where people busted the pipeline to get to the beer, we have decided to put in taps at regular intervals in order to save costs on repairs."

Forget the car, if it loses power and we get Artesian
squirts in the middle of the industrial park... nobody
will care if they get away or not. And I know a couple
of vets [when they two sheets out] could be walk-on
guest ninjas for any cable show out there.

For you ISC--- I lose a brother-in-law, but have a reliable
supply of suds. Good trade.

Let's hope for a leak be an instant party. Though there might be significant ecological damage as pepole trample the wildlife to get there.
