Beer Deliveries on Hold in Parts of The Country Due to Freezing Temps
You know it's cold outside when beer deliveries have to be put on hold because of the freezing temps. Now, that's freaking cold!
It's so cold in parts of the country that kegs of beer were freezing earlier this week and couldn't be delivered. Apparently this happened even before the super polar vortex blasted the Midwest.
According to WNEM, in Minneapolis, the temperature Wednesday hit minus 26 degrees, with a wind chill of 53 below zero. The only way to get the beer out to customers is to deliver it in heated trucks...yeah, let that sink in for a minute. The only way to get cold beer is in a heated truck. Not many of the trucks there are heated so there's that issue too.
We can handle a lot of things Mother Nature throws our way...this however, is not one of those things.
