And The Sewer Rats Rejoiced

Beer drinkers in Canada were calling it alcohol abuse when almost 8,500 gallons of beer and foam exploded out of a fermentation tank. Apparently a small crack had formed in the vat at the Okanagan Springs Brewery in Vernon, British Columbia. The pressurized metal silo was blown apart, causing structural damage and tearing an aluminum door off its hinges. Thousands of litres of beer foam poured across the parking lot and onto the road. Thankfully, no one was injured in the explosion, and rain has since washed most of the beer into the sewers.

I can't help picturing rats surfing along this tidal wave of beer across the street while yelling "Cowabunga!" ... I need to get out more.

What a waste of good beer potential.

"Cowabunga" didn't enter into my vision but the rest did!
