WHEAT RIDGE, Colo. - It's enough to make a grown man cry: A beer truck rolled over on Highway 58, spilling thousands of cans of Coors Beer onto the road.

Wheat Ridge police closed the eastbound lanes of the highway to allow cleanup of the debris. The truck rolled on eastbound Highway 58, heading to eastbound Interstate 70.

The truck that was hauling the beer was uprighted but collapsed during the cleanup operation.

Police said the truck driver refused medical care. There were no other injuries.

Because of the problem with the tractor-trailer rig collapsing, eastbound Highway 58 will likely be closed until at least 11 p.m.. The crash happened just before 7 p.m.

The highway connects I-70 to Highway 6 and runs through Wheat Ridge and Golden.

Oh my can you imagine the environment catastrophe that would have caused. Oh the humanity! Coors Lite is like sex on the beach. F-—in near water!

Best place to dump all of that crappy beer. I just finished work and am heading to the store to get a nice Yebisu Black in a 500mm can and start walking towards Shibuya and enjoy the warm night, and hopefully find some trouble to get into. Enjoy your weekend.

Rolling Rock? Haven’t you heard that brand went downhill ever since they closed the original brewery in LaTrobe, PA (fed with the mountain streams of our Laurel Highlands) and moved it to New Jersey, where it uses the same recycled urine as every other mass market brand?

If only I'd been near that Grolsch accident...sniff, sniff. I'd have it cleaned up faster than the New Orleans guy with that case of Heinekens.

I need to make a trip back to Germany before I die, if only to pay a visit to the Konigsbacher brewery in Koblenz. I went there every month to enjoy a jagerschnitzel mit pomme frits und salat, und zwei liter (oder drei) bock bier.

Their restaurant has a great view of the Rhine River. My return drive back to my apartment in Traben-Trarbach would take me by the Lorelei, and a stop in Bacharach to add to my collection of beer steins.

I remember it like it was yesterday...not 32 years ago.

I haven’t had a Rolling Rock in 30 years. It just popped into my head as a once decent domestic beer.

I didn't know they moved but I know Rolling Rock isn't the same beer it was in the 70s.

Golden Colorado is where the National Earthquake center is located. I suppose this was an earthquake of a type.

Now you know the reason. The final batch of Rolling Rock was shipped from Latrobe on July 31, 2006.

There are rumors that the plant may reopen as the former owners have been in talks with Anheuser-Busch to reacquire the brand. These talks have been ongoing since 2009 and, I suspect Anheuser-Busch will hold off on a final sale until the brand has been sufficiently devalued to ensure it will never compete nationally again.
