(Newser) – Maybe they were planning an epic party? Police in Atlanta say thieves stole two refrigerated trucks carrying 3,272 cases of beer—or about 78,500 bottles worth $90,000—from a craft brewery on Tuesday. By the time officers tracked down the trucks, both were empty, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. About a quarter of the stolen cases were later found at a warehouse, but will be destroyed over storage concerns. Police say to keep a look out for SweetWater Brewing's Summer Variety Cases, which are only to be sold at Costco, per CBS46. (This could be the world's oldest beer.)
