197 years ago today, view the London Beer Flood place.  A vat of beer containing about 162, pharm 128 gallons at the Meux and Company Brewery burst causing a chain reaction that ultimately spilled around 387,906 gallons of brew.  The beer then flooded out onto the streets of London.  In the end, 7 people were dead and 2 homes were destroyed along with other damages.  Raise a pint to those lost souls today.  You can read more about the London Beer Flood here on Wikipedia.
