Did you know?

Back in the 19th Century beer was stored in massive wooden vats, big enough that a 100 people could have a sit own dinner inside them (they often did)In one particular brewery on Tottenham Court Rd one of these vats ruptured and 610 000 litres of beer spilled out, this caused a domino effect destroying the other vats and caused nearly a million and a half litres of beer to flood the surrounding streets.Sadly a number of people were killed.So beer was dangerous in different was than it is now.
