New Zealand brewer offers lifetime supply of beer for return of laptop
WELLINGTON, New Zealand -- A New Zealand brewer is offering a lifetime supply of free beer in exchange for the return of a laptop stolen in a break-in.
Croucher Brewing Co. co-owner Paul Croucher said Friday the computer contains "all our financials" as well as label designs for new beers and business contacts.
"So we decided that if anyone does come into possession of it we'll be happy to offer them a reward -- a dozen [bottles] of beer a month for the rest of their life," he said.
Croucher estimated the total value would likely be about $19,500 for a lifetime of beer. Since making the offer, "plenty of people" had called to say they were looking for the computer, he said.
Coucher said he was optimistic the free beer offer would lead to the return of the stolen computer. "We'd love it back. We're at such a critical stage in our little business that every hit like that is quite big," he said.
