Need another reason to make the beer pilgrimage to Belgium? The historic city of Bruges is now home to the world’s first legal beer pipeline, courtesy of Brouwerij De Halve Maan, which makes Brugse Zot and Straffe Hendrik. The 3,276-metre-long pipeline runs underneath the town’s cobblestone streets from Halve Maan’s brewery (founded in 1856) to a remote bottling plant in an effort to reduce the impact of trucking. Construction took 10 months and cost about four million euros, though those who took part in a crowdfunding campaign also get to enjoy free beer for life proportional to their investment.
