Here's a link to a news story out of Denver in which a train derailed, spilling a tank car full of Coors and another full of asphalt: http://www.9news.com/news/article.aspx?storyid=70643.

So many possibilities with jokes on this one. Like, Q: What do you call a derailed tanker car of Coors? A: A good start.

Asphalt and Coors: Is that what you call a black and tan?

Seriously, though, I have never heard of shipping beer in bulk tankers. Figures it would be Coors, though. But how would they transfer it without it losing its carbonation?

I believe what they do is ship beer concentrate to satellite bottling/canning plants (there's one near here, I believe), who then in turn add the right amount of water, bottle and carb it.

It's a real artisan process.

Beer from concentrate? I guess that explains the taste of Coors, or as my dad likes to call it - deer piss.

They do that so they can continue to claim it is brewed with Rocky Mountain water, I didn't notice it mentioned anywhere that it was definitively Coors though.

That's what the AP is saying: http://www.vaildaily.com/article/20070523/NEWS/70523015

I called my buddy who lives real close to the railyard, told him to get his ass outta bed, gather up every sealable container he could find, and go down there.

He digs free beer. He's always over my place slugging down all my homebrew. I figured he should put in a little work for his beer.
