Landfilled Lager

Landfilled Lager

Some stories are almost too heartbreaking to report. An 18-wheeler carrying more than 17,000 cans of beer en route to Texas pulled off a remarkable imitation of its intended clientele when it became tipsy while passing through Arkadelphia, Ark., and fell over on its side. Thankfully no one was harmed in the accident, but the beer inside the truck was deemed unfit for sale by Arkansas’ Alcoholic Beverage Control and Department of Health. All of the despoiled Busch Lite (rendering this a somewhat lesser tragedy — craft beer would have warranted a candlelight vigil) was duly conducted to the landfill.

The landfill operator in question declined to comment after workers were spotted surreptitiously installing taps on the facility’s leachate collection system.
