Queer beer Geir?

Last Updated: Monday, 13 March 2006, 18:46 GMT


'Creative plumbing' delivers beer

A woman said she thought she was in heaven when she turned on the kitchen tap to find a plentiful supply of beer.
Haldis Gundersen was planning to do the washing up when she made the unusual discovery at her apartment in Kristiansund, west Norway.

But two flights below, workers in a bar faced the more disappointing realisation that water was flowing from their beer taps.

A worker had connected a beer barrel to the apartment water pipe by mistake.

"I turned on the tap to clean some knives and forks, and beer came out," Ms Gundersen told Reuters news agency. "We thought we were in heaven."

But the beer was flat and tasted odd, she said.

'Really creative'

Downstairs at the Big Tower Bar, workers realised what the problem was - a new barrel had been misconnected to Ms Gundersen's water supply.

"The water and beer pipes do touch each other, but you have to be really creative to connect them together," said Per Egil Myrvang from the local beer distributor. He helped employees to rectify the problem over the telephone.

Ms Gundersen bore no grudge. "If it happens again, I'm going to order Baileys," she said.

In Norway, the sale of alcohol is controlled through a state monopoly and beer prices are some of the highest in the world.

I've been in a few bars that I imagine have suffered the same problem

RE: Queer beer Geir?

I Went to grammer school with a kid from Norway named Lars. He was trulty the first full-blown psychopath I ever met. He had wild blond hair and wore big black horn-rimmed glasses.,like Garth but far more menacing. He could tear an engine apart and put it back together again in 7th grade. He beat a kid almost to death with a chunk of concrete and we never saw him again. By the way, this has nothing to do with the beer story.

Funny you should say that TK.When I first started work in the City,a broker friend of mine had a Norwegian assistant called Nils.That guy was as mad as a box of frogs.We did a fair bit of boozing in those days and after three pints,Nils was totally out of control and the source of so much amusement to the rest of us that we fell over ourselves to buy him drinks.Er,maybe he wasn't so crazy afterall.[}:)][:o)]

Won't argue with that-they are both excellent brews.
Do you live anywhere near Manhasset?-there is a fantastic liquor store there.
