This is shocking news from the English district of Cornwall:
A Cornish brewery is mopping up after a burglar used its forklift truck to pierce seven settling tanks containing about 5,000 pints of beer. Another 5,000 pints in other vats were contaminated with petrol at the Ring O' Bells brewery in Launceston. Founder Adrian Carter was also attacked by an intruder during the break-in at the Pennygillam industrial estate on Monday night.Even though it has been in operation since 1999, the Beer Advocate has ratings for two of the beers from Ring O' Bells. The jauntily named Oxford Bottled Beer Database has another. They also have a fairly snazzy web site (or perhaps web presence) including a snazzy darts game. Heavy on the pig theme as well with Sozzled Swine and Porkers Pride among their brands. Ring O' Bells appears also to be a very popular pub name in England if Lord Goog is to be trusted. I suspect some Morris dancing connections.
I can't find anything that gives any indication why this was done but will hope to note if there any follow-up stories.
