Can we claim the title of Beervana without a beer pipeline such as the one in Bruges?
From Atlas Obscura:
In the heart of the medieval city of Bruges is a remarkably contemporary innovation: the world’s first legal beer pipeline. Running underneath the city streets, the tube transports 1,000 gallons of beer per hour—the equivalent of 12,000 bottles—from one of the country’s oldest still-operational breweries, Halve Maan (“half moon”), to its bottling plant two miles away.
…we coulda been a contender if only the city fathers had allowed Henry Weinhard to pipe beer to the then-new Lovejoy Fountain…
