DUBLIN, Ireland - 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 Thursday.

The incident took place 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 ($94,770)," a police spokesman said.

He's gonna have one hell of a hangover in the morning....

It was shite! Bear in mind though, that since the Park Royal brewery was closed, all European Guinness is brewed (though not necessarily canned or bottled) in Dublin. Have honestly had better Guinness in England, Belfast and Lagos (and that's a different recipe).

The culprits have threatened that if the polis investigate too deeply they will give the Budweiser back.

May I cordially invite all Arrsers to a drive by Guiness party on the A1 just south of Newry.
Please wear something green and have cash (sterling only) ready.

See, now if he'd stolen anything else, the thread would have "SCUM" in the title, followed by a load of posts complaining about the perpetrator's genetic makeup, followed by fantasies of amateur eugenics and vigilante justice. :? :roll:
