The ancient Medieval Belgian city of Bruges will soon have a beer pipeline underneath its cobblestone streets, to spare the city’s streets from the dozens of beer trucks that rumble by hour after hour.

Brewer De Halve Maan (“The Crescent”) spokesperson Xavier Vanneste told the media, via Fox News, that the Belgian Beer Pipeline is being built out of concern for the image of the city.

“The idea is born of environmental and quality of life concerns, and not economic ones. It will keep hundreds of [trucks] out of the city center.”

According to Tripadvisor, the northern Belgian city of Bruges “looks like a backdrop for a fairy tale,” with its cobblestone streets, Medieval architecture, and famed canals, that hosts some 100,000 tourists per year. One of the stops tourists make is the 5-century old De Halve Maan brewery, which is building the pipeline.
