Lion down for 3 months!!!

Recommended Posts

There's likely some truth to this.

In just the last week to 10 days, I've seen a noticeable increase in bulk purchases of alcohol, particularly packaged beer.

Due to the forced closure of pubs/clubs & other on-premise venues, off-premise bottleshops are now experiencing higher volume sales as they are now the only available source of alcoholic products to the general public, unless you home brew or home distil yourself.

Given we appear to only be one step away from being put into total lock down due to the COVID-19 virus, people are panic buying & hoarding all sorts of things & packaged beer is just one of them.

I'm not sure if the breweries are experiencing higher sales given the loss of kegged on-premise beer, but I would think they are. And if in fact they are, brewing volumes would have to increase to keep up with that demand.

Just my 20 cents,

Lusty.

I think they have a spike as they dump the bulk packaged beer and increase consumer packaging in the short term, but I don’t think they’ll be brewing that much more.

It’s still 750ml off beer if it comes from a tallie or a keg?

The main quote that got me was it would take 3 months to grow the yeast but yeah packaged beer they would be running low. Went into the local and they were low there.

I think there might be cheap kegs going at some stage too if anyone has a commercial keg coupler.

Surely even if they were unable to produce beer for a period of time, they'd at least keep their yeast stocks at volumes ready to go when needed? 🤔

Cheers,

Yep, elephant hotel in the valley is selling full and part full kegs. If only I had a coupler...

Wonder if they will switch to making hand sanitizer instead? Lots of distilleries and breweries in Canada have because there isn't enough of the stuff.

As a fully registered Pommie  (Aus citizen for 40 years) I wouldn't take much notice of the UK Daily Wail. As with most MSM they generally get it dead wrong.

Three months to grow yeast?  Pull the other one.
