A tank went bust Thursday afternoon at Phillips Brewing, as beer and foam hopped over downtown curbs, sending staff down an ale trail of spilled brew.
Reports of sudsy sidewalks on the corner of Government and Pembroke streets came in shortly before 3 p.m. as brewery staff quickly took to the streets with brooms and a hose to usher the beer into nearby storm drains.
Beer tank leakage @phillipsbeer sent #beer and foam into the street this aft. Word is that a small percentage of product was lost before the fix up, but the smell of hops filled the air. pic.twitter.com/7LrWFD7raT

A staff member says the leak started as they were trying change the valve on one of the brite tanks.
More to come.
