“It comes as very welcome news thatGovernment have now
clarified their stance on takeaway beer and published guidance
which shows England’s pubs and independent brewery taprooms can
sell beer for takeaway providing it is pre-ordered via phone, web
or post. Government have also made clear in the guidance that
brewery shops can remain open and operate as off-licenses, meaning
bottled and canned beer from small breweries can be sold via
on-site shops without pre-order.â€

Small independent breweries and community pubs have proven their
ability to trade responsibly during Covid and this new guidance
will allow them to prepare their businesses for safe continued
trading ahead of Thursday’s lockdown.â€

Pubs and small breweries are intrinsically linked, with 80% of
beer from small independent brewers heading to pubs, and we would
like to thank the Government for their flexibility in allowing pubs
to sell takeaway beer in a Covid safe and practical manner via
pre-orders.â€
