Wacken Open Air is an incredible open air festival that you should be considering going to regardless of the alcohol, but we've got some encouraging news for those that are on the fence – there's gonna be a beer pipeline!
Seriously, according to the Wacken Open Air website, they're currently installing a beer pipeline for the festival that will bring fresh beer to the stalls in front of the main stage
You read it right, the beer stalls in front of the main stages will be provided with fresh beer from our new underground beer pipeline. Both fresh and waste water will run through these pipes too. Of course we will control the hygiene of the tubes all the time.
Until this year, we always had to move dozens of barrels through the infield. We had to bring in full barrels before and during the shows and afterwards we had to remove the empty ones. This caused a lot of avoidable traffic. The new pipeline helps us to protect the floor! And we also get rid of bottlenecks at the bar, you will not have to wait for the new barrel to be on tap anymore.
The installation of the pipes and the enlarged drainage is a lasting investment in the infrastructure of Wacken. We pave the way for many more years of Heavy Metal at Wacken Open Air!
If anything, this sort of sucks for other metal festivals, because now y'all have to step up your game big time. Might we suggest weed dump trucks?
