Party foul: $90,000 worth of stolen beer to be thrown away

ATLANTA — Authorities have found most of the nearly 80,000 bottles of beer that were stolen from an Atlanta brewery last week, but the company says every last drop will have to be thrown away.

SweetWater Brewing Co. spokeswoman Tucker Berta Sarkisian said in a news release that the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and Southeastern Transportation Security Council on Wednesday returned 30 of the 40 pallets of beer that had been stolen, minus a few cases.

The other 10 pallets had already been recovered. It's unclear where the stolen beer was found and no arrests have been made.

Sarkisian says two trailers carrying 3,272 cases of SweetWater's Summer Variety Pack were stolen June 21. The trailers were later found empty.

Because of quality concerns, Sarkisian says the beer, worth about $90,000, will be taken to a recycling facility.

Theater shows R-rated trailer with 'Finding Dory'

CONCORD, Calif. — The owner of a California movie theater is apologizing after a trailer for an R-rated upcoming Seth Rogen comedy was shown ahead of a screening of Disney's "Finding Dory."

The East Bay Times reports moviegoers eager to see the PG-rated "Dory" at a Brenden theater in the Bay Area city of Concord were surprised earlier this month with a preview of Rogen's "Sausage Party," animated film with dark themes about what happens to food after it's taken home from the supermarket.

Brenden vice president Walter Eichinger tells the newspaper it was a one-time mishap due to the theater "moving screens around in effort to accommodate several large last-minute groups wanting to see 'Dory.'" He says the wrong movie was started by mistake and insists it won't happen again.
