New tanks for Coors.

Giant Coors beer-fermenting tanks are being transported by truck to the new Coors brewery in Elkton, slated to open next year. The maiden run of a single 78,000-pound tank took place early last Sunday morning. The German-made tanks were brought in by barge to Hampton Roads, and will be hauled 95 miles to Coors' Elkton location. Utility lines and traffic signals have been raised, and DOT officials have briefed local authorities. A total of 40 of the tanks will be transported.
