This emerges from an open letter from the British Beer and Pub Association on Tuesday. The association is therefore demanding quick help from the government. “Without swift and substantial government intervention, a huge number of pubs will have to close their doors forever,” said the letter, which was also signed by the chief executives of several major pub chains and breweries.

According to the association, the entire supply chain is under a lot of pressure. Among other things, a producer of carbon dioxide, which is important for beer production, has announced that it is going out of business due to the difficult market conditions.
