Pubs to miss out on Bank Holiday beer sales

It's estimated that 10 million extra pints would have been sold this weekend

Pubs will miss out on sales of 10 million extra pints of beer over the bank holiday weekend because of the continued lockdown, it has been estimated.

The British Beer & Pub Association said pubs would have been packed on a normal late May Bank Holiday, with good weather forecast.

Chief executive Emma McClarkin said: "This bank holiday weekend would usually bring a much-needed boost to our sector - as many as 10 million extra pints could have been sold in pubs.

"We welcome the idea of an additional bank holiday in October and support any Government help to boost the speed of recovery of pubs and breweries."
