Police appeal after "rare beer" is stolen from Essex warehouse

First published in News

Police have appealed for information following the theft of thousands of bottles of rare beer from a warehouse.

Officers especially want to hear from anyone who has been offered for sale four different brands of beers made by the Scottish brewers BrewDog.

They were stolen from the mail order company Ales By Mail from their base at Radford Way, Billericay, between Sunday December 29 and the following morning.

The bottled beers taken were Moshi Moshi, Interstellar, Hobo Pop and Brixton Porter all in bottles with the distinctive BrewDog label.

Inspector Mark Rayner said: "The beers are unique in that they are specialist beers which are only available online or from specialist wholesalers.

"All the boxes and bottles regardless of flavour or type have BrewDog label on them so would be easily identifiable.

"We want to hear from anyone who has been offered any of these beers for sale or from anyone who has information about the burglary or any attempts to sell the bottles.”

Anyone who can help should contact officers at Laindon police station on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111

Noted pierre-pierre.

It still took several days by the look of it.

The BBC report I just looked at is dated 03 January. We ought to have a system whereby local police, media and businesses could get together and flash this information all over the place in the blink of an eye.

I think we are missing a big trick somewhere along the line.
