While some figuratively drown in beer, others have literally drowned in beer. The London Beer Flood occurred on October 17, 1814, when a series of beer vats ruptured in the parish of St. Giles, London, England.
A tidal wave of beer flooded the streets surrounding the Meux and Company Brewery, destroying two homes and drowning eight people.
