When the young dane Jens Kristian Andersen was on a Metallica concert in 2007, he saw how grown up men almost came to tears for waiting too long for their pints of beer.
“The bar tenders simply cannot cope up with the demand and the pressure from the long queue of beer-thirsty concert-goers. It took very long time to fill up the glasses,” says Jens.
So he came up with the idea of a beer-filling machine that can fill up six pint glasses in six seconds! He was able to patent his invention whose estimate worth could be approx. $10-20 million. Now that’s not a bad idea at all. Except that with such fast turn-over of serving beer, it would perhaps mean more alcohol-related violence in public events.
Here is the source of this news if you can read danish: stiften.dk .
I have always wondered why they don’t put up a tent in a forest and serve beer there. As much as they can. It seems that music is the unnesessary evil there, making it difficult to have a conversation, making huge lines in the beer tent when there is a break. Why not separate these events? I’d be happy to stay on the music side. And pissing in the forest might reduce forest fires as well 🙂
@Smek: A great idea but you being a non-beer drinker will never understand us regarding the relationship between beer drinking and music.
