I assumed it was a gang of angry old tea totalers, but it says this was just three stupid teens???  This is one of the reasons I drink.  (Well, OK... I really like beer, but whatever.)

There’s a certain percentage of the population on the left side of the bell curve that are jackasses. Hopefully, they had builder’s risk insurance.

Damned kids.  Maybe if Mommy and Daddy would have loved them, this wouldn't happen.

Very sad to see something like this happen.

I'm not connected to this brewery in any way.  Just passing this on because I saw it when searching about this event.  They have a GoFundMe set up for the brewery: https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-ryan-long-and-dirtbag-brewery.

Nope, I guess he was flagged as a bad risk because he'd been broken into before

It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

I saw this article too, heartbreaking.  Parents still have a responsibility for their kids, there was a time when if you did stuff like this, your parents would be embarrassed and you (or say hypothetically a youthful me) would get "my comeuppance" as my grandmother said.  (-for the record I never maliciously damaged personal property, but I may have had a pretty good collection of street name signs during my misspent youth)

If you start holding parents accountable for their kids stupidity, (financially, civic clean-up duty...) a lot of this kind of stupid would stop.
