Pubs face beer shortages as barrels drunk dry after lockdown eased
Pubs are facing shortages of some draught beers following a surge in demand since the most recent easing of coronavirus lockdown measures. Heineken is now temporarily limiting pubs in the UK to ordering three kegs per week amid a huge surge in demand for lagers such as Birra Moretti and Amstel, MailOnline reports. Heineken UK told the website demand has ‘totally surpassed our most optimistic forecasts’ and breweries are ‘working round the clock’ to deal with the increase. It comes just two weeks after millions have returned to pubs in England since outdoor spaces reopened on April 12. But pub landlords warned the shortages have the potential to impact on their profits after a year of difficulties. Alastair Kerr, regional representatives coordinator for the Campaign for Pubs, said the supply issues were a ‘real shame’ for landlords.
