Thief drives out of Guinness with 40,000 pints

From the Irish Independent:

"Thief drives out of Guinness with 40,000 pints

By Jason O'Brien
Friday November 30 2007

GUINNESS would have you believe that good things come to those who wait.

But a man who drove a truck into the company's famous Dublin brewery moved fast before hitching up a trailer containing 450 kegs of different beers and escaping through the front gates.

The audacious robbery took place on Wednesday afternoon at the St James' Gate brewery in Dublin 8, and could ensure a very merry Christmas for someone looking at approximately 40,000 pints.

Diageo, the drinks company that owns Guinness, Budweiser and Carlsberg, said yesterday that the tab stands at 64,000.

That works out at less than 1.60-a-pint, as it does not include mark ups by the Government or the publicans. In the pub, the haul would be worth 160,000.

"It's a serious breach of our security. I spoke earlier to one of our supply guys who said it was unprecedented that this number -- a full trailer of kegs -- would be illegally taken off a site," a spokeswoman for Diageo said yesterday.

"So obviously, we're taking it extremely seriously. Full investigation ongoing but in terms of our own security procedures that we have in place by finding out what exactly happened and how it happened, and also working with the gardai."

In the run up to Christmas there are more than 250 truck movements in and out of the St James' Gate complex every day. At around four o'clock on Wednesday, a man drove a cab truck into the yard where there were three or four trailers loaded with kegs.

He hooked up one of the trailers containing 180 kegs of Guinness, 180 kegs of Budweiser and 90 kegs of Carlsberg, before calmly driving out the main gate.

The trailer was discovered in Slane in Co Meath yesterday afternoon.Investigating gardai are examining CCTV footage from the St James Gate complex and surrounding areas.

They have appealed for any witnesses to contact Kevin Street garda station at 01 6669400."
