CAMRA comment on U.K.-wide CO2 shortage

Commenting on the UK-wide CO2 shortage and its impact on the industry, please find below a comment from CAMRA National Chairman Nik Antona:

“Any shortage of CO2 will have a dramatic impact on both those who brew beer and the business of pubs that serve it – at a time they are struggling to recover from the pandemic – so we would urge the government to secure supplies.

“However, real ale, cider and perry have the advantage of being less reliant on CO2 to produce and serve, and innovative licensees will no doubt find ways to continue to serve pints of real ale, cider and perry. With cask products, served in the traditional way, likely to have less environmental impact and be less reliant on gas supplies, this is a reminder to pubs and drinkers that there are more sustainable ways of enjoying beer, cider and perry.”
