The Beer Hunter

Black and TanI think this might pass for a disaster in Ireland. Who would want 40,000 pints of stolen beer? Guinness asks - Times Online Now I like a Guinness once in a while, or even a Black and Tan (Half-and-half to some of you) now and again. But this is a lot of stout to make off with at one time.
It couldn’t have happened at a worse moment: just as Operation Freeflow was getting under way, putting more police on Dublin’s streets as a pre-Christmas warning to drink-drivers, an opportunistic thief drove out of the Guinness brewery with 40,000 pints.

About 450 kegs of beer and stout were lifted from under the noses of security guards in what is believed to be the first raid on the historic St James’s Gate Brewery at Victoria Quay along the River Liffey.
I'm guessing the beer would be Harp lager.

Sounds like someone is planning a holiday bash. [hat tip A Tangled Web]
