Could they use the alcohol for disinfectant wipes?

I’ll take some off their hands. To me that would be an essential activity.

Getting from 5% to 75% will be a challenge.

Because beer won’t keep for a few months?

Totally expected this thread to be like the “We’re out of coffee” scene from Airplane 2. Did not disappoint.

First a flu pandemic, then a depression, then kegs of beer being dumped.

It’s like reliving the entire 20th. Century on fast-forward.

>> Because beer won’t keep for a few months? <<

Mebbe some town can spare its water tank? But even so: did you ever read how Flint’s water crisis happened? It sounded like a slam-dunk: use the now-much-cleaner river water at a tiny, tiny fraction of the municipal water. They tested it, and it was absolutely safe. The problem was that the perfectly good water hit the outdated, should-have-been-replaced, slum-hole water pipes and picked up lead THERE.

The beer company probably figures the safety engineering needed to protect them from some unforeseeable problem simply isn’t worth it.
