Love this story from Reuters!
Thief makes off with 180 Guinness kegs – basically guys wanders into the place where Guinness is made and makes off with loads of the black stuff and some other rubbish as well! Or.. as Jonathan Saul tells it for Reuters:-
The incident took place on Wednesday at the Guinness brewery on the banks of Dublin’s River Liffey where Ireland’s trademark tipple has been brewed for almost 250 years.
The lone raider’s haul also contained 180 kegs of Budweiser and 90 barrels of Carlsberg lager, police said.
“A man drove into the yard in a truck and took a trailer containing the drink which has an estimated value of 64,000 euros (46.000 pounds),” a police spokesman said.
Rumour has it that the police are looking for a very thirsty Irishman who has issued invitations to the world’s greatest free drink happy hour! Apparently, Carlsberg don’t do happy hours but if they did they’d serve Guinness!! 🙂
Garda Síochána na hÉireann have vowed to test every pint in Dublin to see if any of the missing pints can be found…….. or, indeed, if any matching the missing drink’s descriptions can be identified.
