Belgium Brewery Building A 2-Mile Beer Pipeline To Connect Brewery To Bottling Plant

The award-winning De Halve Maan brewery in Bruges (weird movie) has just been approved to construct a 1.8-mile beer pipeline to connect its downtown brewery (where it's been brewing beer for almost five centuries) with a newly constructed bottling plant outside of town. The pipeline will eliminate the need to transport the beer by truck every day, reduce traffic, cut down on pollution, and lead many ex-truck drivers to start drinking.

Instead of making the 3-mile drive in one of dozens of tankers that traverse town each day, the award-winning beer will flow through a 1.8-mile polyethylene pipeline, making the trip in 15 to 20 minutes. The pipeline will move 6,000 liters of beer every hour

Obviously, I'm going to drill a hole in the pipeline halfway to the bottling plant and siphon off some of the beer. Not enough to be detected and caught, just enough to get drunk. And, okay, maybe sell a little on the side for some spending money. "What do you need money for if you've already got beer?" VALID QUESTION. Ha, I guess I don't.

Thanks to Thaylor H, who agrees the key is buying a piece of property that the pipeline has to run through, then claiming a beer tax.
