The Man Who Keeps Beer from Freezing

Crain’s Chicago Business recently posted an article about a Union Pacific Railroad employee named Bill Diamond and his co-workers.  If you’ve recently enjoyed a Mexican beer, you probably owe this team a little gratitude and appreciation.  It’s their job to keep train cars loaded with Corona, Modelo Especial, Pacifico, and Victoria beers from freezing and being destroyed before they reach the Grand Worldwide Logistics warehouse in Chicago.

With the weather as cold as it has been lately, Diamond’s job is more difficult.  He says it’s necessary to keep the train cars moving so that the beer may turn to slush but won’t completely freeze and cause a problem.  As the cars start getting too cold, Diamond’s team makes sure that the yard master moves the beer cars around to keep the beer from freezing.
