The Belgian city of Bruges has approved plans to build a pipeline which will funnel beer underneath its famous cobbled streets.What's the over/under on how long it takes before they find clandestine taps have been attached along the way?
Locals and politicians were fed up with huge lorries clattering through the cobbled streets and tiny canal paths of the picturesque city and decided to connect the De Halve Maan brewery to a bottling factory 3.2km (two miles) away.
It is estimated that some 500 trucks currently motor through Bruges each year on their way to the brewery, which is a famous tourist attraction.
Now they will be kept out of the city limits, as the pipe pumps 1,500 gallons of beer per hour. Construction is set to begin next year.
