A truck load of beer from BrewDog’s brewery in Ellon, Scotland was stolen from the Moto Lymm services in Cheshire on Tuesday.

The demand for beer has dramatically increased as coronavirus restrictions impact shopping habits.

BrewDog co-founder James Watt Tweeted news of the theft and the company later said the value of the stolen goods was in the region of £150,000 (or a little over $183,000).

The vehicle involved in the robbery was a plain navy blue curtain-sided trailer which was not branded.

The Police Are Looking for Leads

BrewDog said in a statement: “A BrewDog order was destined for our online shop distribution center to keep up with high demand. It was a full truck load with 26 pallets of BrewDog beer. We are working with the Cheshire Police but would appreciate any leads.”

Cheshire Police said officers received a report at about 7:45 AM on Tuesday that a trailer had been stolen from the service station near Cliff Lane in Lymm.

Officers asked that anyone with information about the theft contact Cheshire Constabulary.
