Beer thieves trash pub when keg heist goes awry

Beer thieves left red-faced, trash pub as keg heist goes wrong
Five beer thieves who attempted to steal kegs of beer left for collection outside the The Twa Tams in Perth, Scotland, trashed the pub after their heist went awry. The robbers attempted to make off with the kegs at around 8.20pm on 13 March, only to discover that they were empty and contained no beer, according to the Daily Record. Realising their error of judgement, four of the five fled the scene but a fifth, apparently incensed, threw a keg through the bar’s antique stained glass window, shattering it.

Customers buy entire beer stock to save bar

THE GOOD STUFF
A bar was struggling. Customers bought all its beer stock to keep it in business
(CNN) — A Toronto bar owner says her business will survive the coronavirus pandemic thanks to the loyal customers who bought up her entire beer stock, giving her a desperately needed cash boost.
Abra Shiner opened her bar, Swan Dive, five years ago in the Brockton Village neighborhood of Toronto, Canada. After Covid-19 restrictions forced her to shut the doors, Shiner decided to ask her community for help via Facebook.
“We were blowing through our savings and I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to pay rent towards the end of the month,” Shiner told CNN. “So, I wrote on Facebook asking people to come buy the beer we had in our stock room … and it worked. The post went viral.”

Museum of Beer – Online Exhibit opens this month

Brew: Museum of Beer to open online exhibit this month
Remember Brew: The Museum of Beer? It was going to be a national attraction here in Pittsburgh.
That was in August of 2016, and the folks behind the effort acknowledged that they had a lot of work to do. About two years later, the project’s principals were awarded a $59,700 grant from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to start with an exhibit in a Downtown storefront, but that effort never found a home for reasons including COVID-19’s arrival in the spring.
Brew founder Joe McAllister says that later this month, the exhibit will launch online, a move OK’d by the PLCB and inspired, as he put it, “by the creativity and perseverance of the region’s breweries and restaurants.”
The exhibit, “The Story of Beer in Pennsylvania,” tells that story from Penn’s Colony to the present, with video interviews of brewers, historians, collectors and craft beer pioneers such as brewer Carol Stoudt. Viewers can click on points on a timeline and watch more in a gallery.
