If all goes well, the De Halve Maan (The Half Moon) Brewery in Central Bruges will be the yet another brewery of the world to transport their beer through an underground pipeline.
Belgium’s construction problem is known to all and transporting beer from their brewery to the bottling plant takes up a lot of lorry journey that just adds to the problem.
In 2010, Xavier Vanneste, owner of the brewery, thought about this idea to decrease the traffic problems in Belgium and soon it was panned out in an actual plan. This pipeline is crowd funded and will transport 1500 litres of beer at the speed of 19.3 km/h.
The pipeline will be laid to a probable depth of 100 feet underground, and the estimated cost of the project is around 24 crores. With the project soon to kick off, Vanneste has offered some handsome rewards to those who will pledge certain amounts, like other crowdfunding projects.
