This Town Plans to Install a Fountain That Sprays Beer Instead of Water

The town of Žalec, Slovenia recently announced that it will be installing a public fountain that sprays beer instead of water. While beer lovers have surely dreamed of their own beer-dispensing fountain, it seems that such fantasies may soon become a reality.

Despite Žalec's tiny population of 4,878, the town will be spending $400,000 on a public fountain that sprays beer instead of plain old water. The public piece is intended to bring tourists to the region, which is already know as the 'Valley of Green Gold' for its abundance of hops. The fountain will act as a sort of self-serve public tap that will dispense a number of Slovenian beers.

While there is no official date on the completion of the booze-spewing fountain, the project demonstrates a unique way to attract tourists to the tiny, beer-loving village.
