Society of Independent Brewers respond to Boris Johnson’s announcement of no further changes to restrictions in England
“It is reassuring for small independent breweries that the Prime Minister has committed to no further changes to restrictions in England.
But for independent brewers and pubs the situation was and continues to be massively affected by the mixed messaging in December, which is normally the most important month of the year for hospitality. Pubs have proven they can operate safely and Now in January brewers and pubs need peoples’ support more than ever after a devastated December. So whether you are popping in for a lunchtime meal, a post-work pint, or for a non-alcoholic option and a catchup with a friend – support pubs and breweries this January because without this trade, many will not survive.”
