BBC News Beer Pipeline. So Germany is building a massive underground pipeline... not for oil, not for natural gas, not for coal, diamonds, diamond dogs or minerals from the kingdom of the Sleestaks... but for beer. It is being constructed for the upcoming Wacken Open Air festival this August. It is being hailed as being more eco-friendly and more efficient for getting tasty beers into thirsty rock fans mugs. Every year it is claimed the beer trucks delivering their suds tear up the countryside, and this will put a stop to that. Although this line did catch my eye... YIKES! This year it is probably going to be pretty sanitary, but next year you have to wonder if the pipe delivering your frosty brew was just a few weeks earlier pumping human waste to parts unknown? I thought I would open this topic up for thoughts and opinions... what do you think? Great idea? Ridiculous? Over the top? Eco-friendly brilliance? Is anyone here attending WOA? How would you feel about getting your beer from site unseen 4 miles away?
