SIBA respond to ‘restrictive’ hospitality measures which will remain in place until the end of January

The Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) have responded to the Scottish First Minister’s announcement that ‘restrictive’ hospitality measures will remain in place until the end of January:

“It is disappointing the First Minister has kept the restrictive table-service only and one-metre distancing measures in place for Scottish hospitality businesses – measures which make profitability impossible for thousands of community pubs and the small independent breweries who supply them.

With current measures set to remain in place until at least the 24th of January it is now vital the Government provide support for struggling small breweries, and reintroduce the Brewers Support Fund which provided a lifeline to businesses last year.” James Calder, SIBA Chief Executive.
