Brewers Face Challenges To Keep The Beers Flowing For Thirsty Punters
Wouldn’t you know it. Just as English pubs are allowed to re-open and serve customers indoors again, there may be a shortage of beer.
For one, the beer companies are struggling to find delivery drivers. Add to this a worldwide shortage of aluminum and the brewers can’t get their brews to thirsty customers. And thirsty they will be after being denied to go to their neighborhood pub as industry experts predicting that punters across the country will be consuming a whopping 92 pints a second.
That’s a lot of beer and one can only imagine the reaction of pubbbers go to the pubs only to face empty taps and empty beer glasses.
This is not the scenario they are expecting to face after being locked out of the pubs and locked up at home time and time again for the past year-plus due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Not only that but due to the aluminum situation, the brewers are focusing more on putting beer into kegs rather than in cans. So beer stores could face a big-time shortage of brews.
This is akin to your soccer team taking the big rival to overtime only to miss all the penalty kicks. Having the girl you desire on one night snuggling up to you at the pub and – just as you’re ready to have a blissful night together – having her friend yank her away as you’re walking out the door.
Yes, frustrating to say the least.
Hopefully the brewers will come up with a solution to the pint problems. Or the punters are going to be a bit upset that they can’t get a beer when they can finally go to the pub.
