OSLO, Norway – A woman thought she was in heaven when beer instead of water flowed from the faucets in her apartment in west Norway.
â€œI turned on the tap to clean some knives and forks and beer came out,â€ Haldis Gundersen told Reuters from her home in Kristiansund, in west Norway. â€œWe thought we were in heaven.â€
It turned out that a worker in a bar two floors below had mixed up the pipes on Saturday evening, wrongly connecting a new barrel to a water pipe leading to Gundersenâ€™s apartment. The bar got water in its beer taps.
Definitely one to file under “News of the Weird.”
