Yes I had never heard about this before. Quite an interesting story. I´d heard of streets flowing with milk and honey, but never beer and molasses. There was also a fire in a Danish sugar factory a few years back, which resulted in a lake of caramel being created.

Icy thought I should write up the solar flare / telegraph one, but I'm not in the habit of writing guide entries, despite all the copious research I do for QI.

Perverse of me, I know.
