Police are looking to arrest and charge two men with arson after they allegedly burned down a store because it ran out of their favorite brand of beer, police in Germany said.

Dortmund Police said on Thursday, that they are looking for the two men after they were accused of burning down a North Rhine-Westphalia store on Sunday at 5:00 a.m., after demanding a bottle of Becks Gold.

When store workers told them that they do not have the beer in stock, the two men left.

20 minutes later, they returned with a can, and after speaking briefly with the store owner, one of the men suddenly poured fuel on the door and lit it on fire.

A fire broke out, causing damage to the front of the store.

The two men, who police said were drunk at the time, fled from the scene.

Police said that the two men speak Polish.
