    You would think a giant 18 wheeler in bold blue that has their name on it would be easy to spot around town lol.

    Thieves had better start drinking. They've got 8 - 12 weeks before those IPAs start to fade.

    Especially with the vibrations of the truck impacting the beer, those IPA could be down to a few weeks then turds..:stuck_out_tongue:

    It's just probably another publicity stunt.

    It wouldn't surprise me to read that James Watt suspects that a squirrel stole that truck.

    Maybe he could hire this cat to help him track down that nefarious squirrel?:thinking_face:

    Poor thieves, only getting a truck full of mediocre beer. Would make one hell of a post in the Post a picture of your beer haul thread, though! :grin:

    Then I would hunt them down myself. And keep half the loot. Finder’s fee. :sunglasses:

    If I were the cops I'd try to track down the only person who thinks Punk is a cool name for their beer.

    Probably the most punk thing that ever happened to the beer.

    How is stealing beer Punk?

    We are not a bunch of thieves.

    I'm my, sorry King of the Punks, I was under the impression that anarchy was one of your core tenets. Felt this qualified given all that's going on. Oi, Oi, Oi!!!

    They're not going to drink it. They just wanted the truck.

    Brew Dog has lost 70% of their revenue during the pandemic, so they might not be around much longer.

    Why do I get the feeling authorities will find this truck in a local river 20 years from now and arrest the founders for insurance fraud.

    if i was drunk enough with a mob of hooligans i'd do it; Hunter Thompson would approve as Ale is indeed the preferred drink of hooligans

    A stolen 18 wheeler full of beer seems like valid content for a "Beer News" forum to me

    I can see it being sold out of a back alley for 50% off a six pack....so only $10 right? Still no buyers.

    This would be a good math/econ lesson for kids staying at home. What is worth more, the truck or its cargo? Think of all the calculations needed- actual sticker price, the intangibles of happiness that the beer brings, the opportunity cost of the truck going missing, and not to mention the virus variable. If I taught math, this would definitely be on my online lessons that have to start next week.

    This was honestly the first the thing that came to mind. Can’t sell it, fraud it.

    Sure as hell can sell it. There's bound to be bent store/bar/restaurant owners who will buy it at 25% of normal wholesale.

    Oh come on, now. There’s no crying in punk rock.

    Blink 182 has some good songs.



    Just kidding. They’re the Punk IPA of music.

    Johnny Rotten would probably laugh his ass off if he saw this thread. I saw him on Epix channel's PUNK miniseries and he was funny AF.

    I think I spotted it outside my front door Tuesday. Noticed , & thought it odd, that the squirrel was tipsy, & generally acting drunk. Draped all over a cardinal , saying "Love ya, bro" over & over.:thinking_face:

    Well, he looks to be in much better shape than his brother, which the BrewDog dudes used for packaging:

    Just waiting for a "special" release of some beer to commemorate this event.
    Don't get my hopes up like that.
