Crying over spilt beer

by Random

In what can only be described as a horrific tragedy, as much as 40,000 pounds of beer was scattered across Interstate 94 in Eastern Kalamazoo County in Michigan.  (Who measures beer in pounds?!?!)

You've seen this picture before, so you know how heartbreaking it is

The sobering accident occurred around 11:10 pm late Tuesday night, a prime beer drinking time, when the driver of the beer truck experienced a tire blowout causing the vehicle to swerve out of control and strike a pillar.  The highway was closed for about 5 hours, while distraught crews cleaned up the beer.

The driver was taken to Bronson Methodist Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.  Bob and Doug McKenzie were too upset and unavailable for comment.

I live in Denver, Colorado. This blog is everything about beer, wine, cider, mead and other spirits.
I am a avid homebrewer and winemaker. I’ve been making my own beer and wine for many years. I started making beer when I was in college (mostly because the drinking age in the United States is 21). My first few beers were horrible. The beers are much better now, and I often supply my neighborhood with free beer! It is a great hobby!
