A Bunch Of Divers Listened To A Drunk In A Bar And Found Nearly 100 Beers In A Canadian Swamp
A beer truck crashed, and now there's swamp beer for everyone.
Mike Kelly and a group of commercial divers were recently in Prince Rupert, B.C., on a trip to harvest sea urchins. The weather kept them off the water, so they hit the local bars. That's when an intoxicated local told them a story they couldn't ignore.
"One of the guys started chatting with this super drunk dude who was talking about a beer truck that had gone off the road and there was beer all in a swamp," Kelly told BuzzFeed Canada.
The man at the bar said the crash scattered the precious cargo all over the road and in the swamp. He claimed he and others had filled a pickup truck with hundreds of bottles of beer.
Kelly and his fellow divers were skeptical, but they got directions from the guy just in case.
The next morning, they debated whether the story was credible enough to warrant a trip. That's when one crew member, who had gone to a different bar the night before, told them what happened when he'd tried to order a Corona.
"I was at the Belmont and the bartender said they were out of [some] beer because the delivery truck never showed up," he told the group.
They immediately grabbed their diving gear and drove to the spot.
