Brazen Thief Robs 180 Kegs of Guinness
DUBLIN (Reuters) | A thief made off with 180 kegs of Guinness beer after smoothly driving into the Dublin brewery which makes the black stout and snatching a trailer load of drink, police said on Thursday.
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.
