Spilled Busch beer in Florida might be a 'terrible tragedy,' but it's an Iowan's dream come true
A semi-truck reportedly carrying 60,000 pounds of Busch beer spilled its cargo early Wednesday onto Interstate Highway 10 in Okaloosa County, Florida.
Yes, we know: This "terrible tragedy," as Busch tweeted, just might be an Iowan's dream come true.
According to ABC affiliate WPLG-TV, a Florida Highway Patrol release says an estimated 60,000 pounds of Busch beer was thrown onto I-10 after the semi-truck driver lost control of the tractor-trailer, which came to a rest on its side.
There were only minor injuries, the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post Wednesday.
"But the beer didn't fare so well," the post quipped.
Additionally, WEAR-TV reported that the driver, Michael Nolan Powell, 44, of Simpsonville, South Carolina, was cited for careless driving.
Nearly 1,000 miles away, though, there's no question that many Iowans now are salivating over what's dubbed the state's favorite beer (as claimed by this 2014 study from Vox.)

In case you missed it last December: Before Iowa State's Liberty Bowl victory over Memphis, an ISU men's basketball watch party was held King Jerry Lawler's Hall Of Fame Bar And Grille. The wrestling legend himself was there, too.
In an interview with WHO-HD sports reporter Michael Admire, Lawler was asked: "What's your impression of all these crazy Cyclone fans?"
"They drank us completely out of Busch Light beer!" Lawler replied. "I didn't realize, in Memphis, Tennessee, nobody's ever heard of Busch Light beer.
"But apparently it's big in Iowa, right?"
