In the interest of keeping their streets quiet and picturesque, Belgium has approved an underground beer pipeline that will help eliminate the need for 500 delivery trucks. This new pipeline will connect the historic De Halve Maan brewery to a bottling factory two miles away.

The brewery is a huge tourist attraction and draws many people to the city of Bruges, but the trucks detracted from the city. Now, 1,500 gallons of beer will be able to be transported every hour without a single truck being involved in the process. The company’s director, Xavier Vanneste notes:

“The beer will take 10 to 15 minutes to reach the bottling plant. By using the pipeline we will keep hundreds of lorries out of the city center”.

You can pre-order it now, and it should be available sometime next March.
