A Victoria street turned into a river of beer after a tank reportedly burst at a downtown brewery.
Reports surfaced around 2:45 that a tank burst at Phillips Brewery on Government Street at Pembroke Street.
Staff members could be seen outside the brewery with a hose, trying to direct the stream of suds into a storm drain with brooms.
They told a CTV camerman that the spill was caused by a valve issue.
It's unclear how much beer was lost in the incident.
Those living near the brewery reported a strong smell of beer in the air as the mess was cleaned up.
