Buckhead beer heist: 2 trailers stolen from SweetWater Brewing

SweetWater Brewing Co. may well be crying in its beer after two trailers of beer were stolen early Tuesday morning (June 21) from the brewery at 195 Ottley Drive in south Buckhead. Each trailer contained 20 pallets of SweetWater’s summer variety pack.

One empty trailer has been found on Camp Creek Parkway. The second trailer has been found on Southwoods Parkway. About one-fourth of the stolen beer was recovered, but none of that will be able to be sold.

APD returns some of Sweetwater's stolen beer.

The first trailer was supposed to go to the brewery’s repack location and had 1,440 cases, or 34,560 beers. The stolen summer variety packs contained one brand/each rather than a mix of styles. Between the two trailers, a total of 3,272 cases,  or 78,528 bottles of beer, were stolen.

According to 11Alive News, police are tracking leads from witnesses saying someone tried to sell them stolen beer. Police are also viewing surveillance video from the brewery.

SweetWater wants retailers and consumers to be on the lookout for SweetWater Summer Variety Packs containing just one style of beer: 420, IPA, Take Two Pils, or Goin’ Coastal, with “best if enjoyed by”/expiration dates: IPA 9/21, 420 9/20, Take Two Pils 9/20, Goin’ Coastal IPA 9/20.

If consumers find these styles on shelves at a store, they are asked to please call 404.691.ALES or email .
