Is Newburgh putting a beer pipeline under the city?

If the rumors are true, businesses and residents will soon be able to tap into the endless supply of beer flowing beneath the city of Newburgh.

The internet has been buzzing this week over the announcement that a beer pipeline is being laid under the streets of Newburgh. While it may seem like a far-fetched idea, the beer pipeline is actually a real thing.

In 2016, Belgian brewery De Halve Maan installed a two-mile pipeline that sends beer from its brewery through the medieval city of Bruges. The pipeline can pump enough beer to fill 12,000 bottles per hour. Imagine being able to turn on the tap and choose water or beer. It’s either the best idea or a disaster waiting to happen.

Newburgh Brewing Company posted an announcement on their Instagram page that had many wondering if a beer pipeline was coming to Newburgh. “Beer Pipes Are Here!”, to a picture of giant pipes sitting in front of a brewery. it is written. The post explained what the pipes were used for.

Halaiko says the idea started as a way to reduce the huge stress and inconvenience the Newburgh sewer replacement project is causing by tearing up streets and causing headaches for local businesses and residents.
