Beer, not water, flows in Norwegian apartment taps

OSLO, Mar 13 (Reuters) A woman thought she was in heaven when beer instead of water flowed from the taps in her apartment in west Norway.

''I turned on the tap to clean some knives and forks and beer came out,'' Haldis Gundersen told Reuters from her home in Kristiansund, west Norway. ''We thought we were in heaven.'' Beer in Norway is among the most expensive in the world with a 0.4 litre (0.7 pint) costing about 50 crowns (7.48 dollars) in a bar.

Gundersen said she tried the beer but that it tasted a bit odd and was not fizzy.

It turned out that a worker in a bar two floors below had mixed up the pipes on Saturday evening, wrongly connecting a new barrel to a water pipe leading to Gundersen's flat. The bar got water in its beer taps.

''If it happens again I'm going to order Baileys (coffee liqueur),'' she said.
