In an attempt to build awareness for their ‘Neighbor Day’ campaign, the company held a block party last Saturday in Providence, R.I. When brewery employees were cleaning up, they noticed the costume had been stolen.
“I’m pretty upset,” said CEO Mark Hellendrung. “Those suits have to be handmade by a seamstress and are pretty expensive.”
Hellendrung said the Tall Boy costume is worth an estimated $3,000 but is optimistic that it will be returned.
“You don’t just steal Tall Boy to throw him in the closet,” he said. “We are going to get him, and bring him back to his rightful place.”
The brewery has filed an official police report and is offering a reward for the stolen item. Anyone with information regarding Tall Boy’s whereabouts are encouraged to contact Narragansett Beer directly.
