Thieves have broken in to Saltaire Brewery and stolen a large quantity of casks containing a new brew.
It is thought that they may have been stolen in order to offer to pubs or
festivals, as a large quantity of bottled Saltaire beer was also taken,
using a fork lift truck. Casks are often stolen to sell on as scrap, but
stealing bottles for scrap does not seem worthwhile.
The casks are so far the only "Bavarian Gold" to have left the brewery, so
please be aware and pass this information on to licensees and festival
organisers who you think might be approached.
