Burst pipe at a brewery floods street with beer

A genuine – and fatal – beer flood happened in London in October 1814.
A huge vat containing over 135,000 gallons of beer burst, starting a ‘domino effect’ of broken barrels which flooded one end of Tottenham Court Road, destroying two homes and killing eight. Five of the victims had been attending a funeral.

"This is a terrible sight gentle people...I don't know how much longer I can stay on the air.. Oh! The humanity."

"On another subject, why do we say a foreign word whenever someone sneezes? Tomorrow I'll take a look at the African Swine Fever outbreak and the pork shortage...

Up close and personal with Les Nessman. Don't miss it!"

Street beer. Sweet with a hint of asphalt and leaked motor oil. Delightful.

Beer pipes never burst in college dormitories for some reason.

I wonder if something this special could happen at the Bombay Gin factory?
