A New Zealand brewery is reportedly offering a lifetime supply of beer for the return of a stolen laptop. Local media said the laptop was stolen from the Croucher Brewing Company in the central North Island city of Rotorua earlier this week.
Owners were desperate to retrieve the computer containing designs, contact details and financial information, the Rotorua Daily Post said.
They have offered free beer to anyone giving clues leading to its recovery.
Co-owner Paul Croucher said the company would provide a lifetime supply of about 12 bottles a month to anyone who could name the thief.
The company has back-up copies of the material stored on the laptop but these are not up to date, the newspaper said.
