Beer Contamination record? :-)

Post by timmse » Wed Oct 16, 2002 9:00 am

Carlsberg Denmark had to discard 3.3 million cans of beer today, due to bacterial contamination that clouded the beer and made it tast sour! That has to be some sort of record.

I assume there is now a job opening for a head brewmaster there now.

Discard?

Note they said they had to "discard" the beer, not pour it out. Somewhere, there was one Hell of a party. ;)
