Beer Lake? In Germany? Please Let It Be True!

Oh yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus!

The truck, carrying 12 tonnes of freshly brewed beer, lost most of its load on a sharp left-hand turn at the bottom of a hill, according to Kassel police inspector Wolfgang Jungnitsch.

Nearly 80 crates carrying about 800 litres flew off the truck, most of the bottles smashed, and their contents quickly froze in the chilly temperature of about minus 4 degrees Celsius, he said.

"A sheet of ice quickly formed and the air was filled with beer fumes," Inspector Jungnitsch added.

It took an hour to clear the intersection, and police said the trucker faced a fine for not securing his load properly.
