Saltaire Brewery Raided

Last night, thieves broke in to Saltaire Brewery and stole a large quantity of
casks and bottles of beer.

It is thought that they may have been stolen in order to offer to pubs or
festivals. The casks are so far the only “Bavarian Gold” to have left the
brewery, so please be aware and pass this information on to licensees and
festival organisers who you think might be approached. The identity of the beer
may of course have been disguised.

Over 70 casks were taken, all full of Bavarian Gold, from a locked,
refrigerated compound. Empty casks, all accessible, were not taken, so it seems
the thieves were not after scrap metal.
The casks were rented, metal casks, with the “e-cask” name on the side, with 2
bright orange hoops painted on.

3 pallets of bottled Saltaire Goldings and 3 pallets of Cascade, all 500ml, were
also taken.

Please circulate this information as widely as possible.

Marsden Crawl, Mon 1st June

The branch will be holding a social crawl around Marsden on Monday 1st June
starting at 8pm at the Swan.

Please note that we were originally supposed to start at the Tunnel End, but the
pub will be closed on Monday, so we have had to change our plans.

We will then move on to the Conservative Club & the Riverhead.

Catch the 19:15 182 from Huddersfield Bus Station, or the 19:30 train from
Huddersfield Train Station.

We hope to see you there.
