Beer pipeline approved by the Belgian town...


Beer pipeline approved by the Belgian town will to link De Halve Maan, a historic brewery and popular tourist attraction, to its nearby bottling facility. The polyethylene pipes will annually keep 500 trucks off Bruges’ cobblestoned streets, which is a lot for a city that reaches only about 53 square miles. 

All those trucks moving Belgian beer around are just fuel-hungry, emissions-generating, traffic-causing trouble, and the people of Bruges are ready do something about it. Their plan: a two-mile underground beer pipeline.

The polyethylene pipes will annually keep 500 trucks off Bruges’ cobblestoned streets, which is a lot for a city that reaches only about 53 square miles. ”The idea is born of environmental and quality of life concerns, and not economic ones,” said company director Xavier Vanneste to the Telegraph.
De Halve Maan’s pipeline is designed to carry more than 1,500 gallons of beer per hour and will take 10 minutes to 15 minutes to move the beer from the brewery to the plant, reported Mashable. Construction will begin next year.
