Thieves Raid Great Lakes Brewing Company, Christmas Ale Untouched

Cleveland police are on the hunt for three Ohio City thieves who recently broke into Great Lakes Brewing Co. and made off with over 500 feet of copper electrical cable.

The upshot? GLBC's coveted Christmas Ale (and actually all of their signature brews) remained unharmed.

The break-in occurred at around 2:30 a.m. on Oct. 21- just three days before the brewery's highly anticipated annual Christmas Ale First Pour.

Fortunately for the rest of us, the three thieves were too busy causing thousands of dollars worth of damage during their little escapade to crack a tap and try the brewed gold ahead of time.

Cleveland.com has some security photos up of the suspects- you can check them out here.

The investigation is still ongoing, so if you have any info about the suspects or the break-in, call the Cleveland Division of Police Second District Detective Bureau at (216) 623-5218.
