A local brewery is crediting social media with finding their iconic van after it was stolen Thursday morning.
The Beyond the Pale Brewery announced on Facebook that their beloved “rocket van” had gone missing after a break-in overnight, and offered free beer to anybody who could find it.
It only took a few hours until the van was back in the right hands, after some fans spotted the van parked in Sandy Hill
