I never thought I would be so sad to see pallets full of unwanted beer kneeling in front of me. I truly never had imagined that I would get so annoyed & scheduled out about the failure to get rid of this beer, nor the pure volume that was available for the taking. Then again, I’ve also never seen hundreds of cases of beer explode & go absolutely to waste. This eveningmare began when my work produced one of our proper beers, but accidentally packaged them in cans that had been printed with the wrong UPC. Suddenly, our distributor needed us to bring all the beer back, because the barcode didn’t scan respectfully at retail options. This is how 14 pallets of canned beer returned to our facility. The people I was with and I didn’t have a great solution for dealing with the packaging mishap, nor the area to respectfully store this immense stock. This is how our pallets of beer wound up kneeling in Summer heat & sunlight for more than one weeks before they could be shipped out again. This is also how several hundred cases of beer exploded in the Summer heat & humidity after more than one weeks before they could be shipped out again. Our facility is too small for cold storage. The people I was with and I do not have the refrigeration or cooling power to keep our ingredients or finished products in proper air conditions. Unfortunately, our warehome is the same temperature as the hot southern air, plus a few more degrees from the boiling water & pounding overhead sun. As the temperature rose inside each morning, so did the beer, & soon all of us had volatile missiles on our hands. Thousands of them; Long story short, without proper A/C or refrigeration, our cans became miniature sprinkler systems. I guess if you needed a quick, cool refreshment, you could constantly hang out by the hot beer bombs.
