In the past beer trucks have churned up the fields in and around the site bring beer to all the music lovers which have numbered 75,000 fans a year over three days. Each one of them consumes, on average, nine pints each event. That’s a lot of trucks and a lot of churning of fields.
This year a four mile pipe will deliver the required beer at a rate of some six glasses every six seconds! It will also be far more environmentally friendly with fewer trucks up and down the fields.
The WOA website states that the pipeline is an investment to make the festival more sustainable and cost-effective. It will also, apparently, deliver water for those who might want it!
