Viral video shows bar owner chasing after beer kegs as they roll down the street

A bar owner in Londonberry, Northern Ireland, chased after his keg barrels as they rolled down the street — see the comical video.

This might have been a beer drinker’s worst nightmare.

A bar owner was caught on video sprinting after runaway beer kegs that began rolling down the street.

Dan McCallion owns the Abercorn Bar in Londonberry, Northern Ireland — and got himself in a pickle when he noticed that his keg barrels were rolling down the street.

Yet the wind picked up and blew the barrels down the street.

After hearing an odd rattling noise, McCallion — who had been inside the bar — decided to go outside and investigate.

When he got outside, the kegs were already tumbling down the road.

As an avid cycler, McCallion said he luckily had the leg strength to catch up with the kegs — but he took a tough tumble himself.

“I went down to grab one and lost my footing,” he said.

McCallion noted that he did sprain his ankle and hurt his shoulder — but today he finds comic relief in watching the video of himself chasing the rolling barrels.

“I got a little sprain on my ankle and hurt my shoulder because of the tumble. I only started laughing when we put the video together,” he said.

“It’s funny to watch it back.”
