Now this is a pipeline worth fighting for.

As oil pipelines threaten the drinking water and land of the Native Americans here in the states, pipelines in Belgium are threatening sobriety. The world’s first legal beer pipeline in Bruges, Belgium carries 1,000 gallons, the equivalent of 12,000 bottles, of beer an hour from the brewery to the bottling planet two miles away.

This is not the first beer pipeline. There was at least one illegal one operating during Prohibition, in which a 6,000-foot hose was found under the streets of Yonkers, NY in 1930.

This perfectly legal pipeline, however, starts at Halve Maan beer brewery, one of the country’s oldest. It opened in 1856, and thanks to a crowdfunded campaign, the brewery was launched into the 21st century with a brand-new beer pipeline.

According to Atlas Obscura, “The 500+ donors received a priceless thank you gift: free beer for life. Today, visitors can glimpse a section of the pipeline through a transparent manhole cover cut into the cobblestone street.”

The 40-year-old British woman gave her twin sons some money to get themselves some chips and then headed for a bar to start deinking.

After leaving them at around 8pm, she was too busy boozing to go looking for them or to alert the police since "she thought they knew the way home".

Needless to say, the police and court had a less relaxed take on this.

Not exactly mother of the year, that one!

Why? We don't know. The makers of 'Chambong' say that it's awesome but it doesn't seem like they've done any studies that substantiate that claim. If you're wondering how it even came about, we do have the answer to that one according to their website:

The origins of the first Chambong came about in early 2014, during a moment preempting the Super Bowl. We had an epiphany the week prior of the big event to create a “Super…Bowl.” The resulting device of our imagination harnessed an ability to hold an extraordinary amount of cannabis, however was sadly non-functional as a smoking apparatus. Fortune would prevail several evening later, while onlookers examining the piece remarked at how it looked like a fantastic wine “shooter”.  They promptly filled it with Champagne and experienced the resulting magic…And thus was born the glory that is — The Chambong.


And their reviews are pretty good/weird.

You may remember the belligerent woman who attacked an Uber driver while trying to get a ride home in the wrong car. After the incident, Dr. Anjali Ramkissoon was put on leave during an investigation at her work and publicly shamed on social media.

She also says that in addition to hateful comments, she's received threatening personal messages and that her family's address has been leaked.  

Now she's done the only thing she could think of to pacify the unforgiving public which is to go on national television and apologize.

This sh*t blows homebrew, kombucha, whatever out the water. Apparently we live in a world where our bodies possess the capability to brew booze.

An upstate New York woman blew a blood alcohol level four times the legal limit, but it's chill because she lives with an auto-brewery condition. Also known as gut-fermentation syndrome this rare medical condition occurs when gastrointestinal yeast converts common food carbs into ethanol.

The woman of our unbelievable story met her husband for lunch, where she consumed four drinks between the hours of noon and 6pm. After leaving the restaurant, her car experienced a flat tire, which she continued to drive on until a concerned driver phoned the police. It was then that an officer discovered her blood alcohol level was near 0.40. Because a 0.4 is an extreme and immediate threat to one's life, officers immediately took the woman to the hospital where she discovered, for the first time, that she suffers from gut-fermentation syndrome.

We're pretty sure this guy shows all indications of auto-brewery condition.
