There's going to be a beer pipeline under Belgium

They've already got some of the best beer in the world in their breweries and bellies, but now Belgians will have it running beneath their feet, too, when a new beer pipeline is installed under the city of Bruges (where Colin Farrell hopefully won't be able to get at it). The Belgian brewery De Halve Maan recently announced plans to begin construction of the underground, almost two-mile-long pipeline, which will run between their brewing hall and their bottling plant, which are currently located across the city from each other.

Not only will the pipeline cut down on transportation costs and get rid of the inevitable traffic (and dangers of interception) associated with moving huge amounts of beer, but it'll also allow the brewery to efficiently shoot around 1,500gal of beer per hour underneath the city streets. At a regular speed, the beer will take around 10-15 minutes to reach the bottling plant from the brewing hall, from which it will take a slightly longer amount of time to make it into your mouth.

Finally, something underground that everyone can agree is cool.
