Earlier this summer, an inspector was conducting a routine bridge check when a small sinkhole was spotted nearby. This hole would lead to a larger investigation that ultimately revealed more than a dozen 150-year-old caves that were used to make what is a favored drink in America today — beer.

According the Cedar Rapids Gazette, up to 14 beer caves dating back to the mid-1800s were identified after the initial look into the sinkhole revealed there was more to it. The caves were used to age beer made by breweries at the time and keep the beverage cold, the newspaper reported. . . . Read Complete Report

April 2, 2013 – LOUISIANA – The head of Louisiana’s Department of Natural Resources named 13 scientists and other experts Friday to serve on a blue-ribbon commission tasked with determining the long-term stability of the area around northern Assumption Parish’s sinkhole. The 13-acre sinkhole and consequences of its emergence and continued growth, such as methane trapped under the Bayou Corne area, have forced the evacuation of 350 residents for more than seven months. The sinkhole, found in swamps between Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou on Aug. 3, is believed to have been caused by a failed Texas Brine Co. LLC cavern mined into the Napoleonville Dome. . . .
