German hard rock festival builds a 4 mile long pipeline – to deliver 106,000 gallons of beer

Do you love beer and hard rock?

If yes, then maybe you should pay a visit to the German city of Wacken this summer.

The festival organizers are currently building a 4 mile (7 km) pipeline. Why? To quench the thirst of festival-goers with 106,000 gallons of beer.

 

Wacken Open Air in the north of Germany is one of the worlds largest hard rock festivals, and every August around 75,000 thousand visitors from around the world flock to attend.

And these visitors are thirsty.

According to the BBC, the organizers are building a 4 mile pipeline to keep up with the demand for beer.

The 14-inch diameter pipeline will be able to deliver 1 beer every second.

The pipes are built to prevent damage to the roads that the massive amount of beer delivery trucks would have caused. This might sound like an exaggeration, but the average festival-goer in Wacken drinks 1.3 gallons of beer over 3 days!

This ingenious solution will make things easier for the bars, and is more friendly toward the environment. The organizers also stress that the pipes will meet strict hygiene standards.

As a beer lover, this kind of news definitely puts a smile on my face.

Anything that is good for both the festival-goers and the environment is a home run in my book!
