Brewer Guinness constructed a full-sized pub in London's Broadgate Centre made of handcarved ice last month. The building took three months to make and boasted crystal-clear ice walls 3m high by 10m long. A frosty barmaid dispensed samples of its drink behind its 20ft bar before the pub called last orders (and melted).
