Booze Supplier Says Beer Prices Could Drop To 50p A Pint In Spain After Coronavirus Pandemic

Many people have agreed that a holiday is on the cards when the coronavirus pandemic is a thing of the past and I think we can all agree it's very well deserved.

Well, what if we told you that you might be able to get yourself a cheap bev as well? Surely that's worth staying in for, right? Right.

According to Euro Weekly News, bars in popular holiday destinations could be cutting their prices in a bid to encourage people to treat themselves to a night out.

Alcohol supplier Derek Payne told the publication that alcohol prices could be as low as supermarket prices to encourage tourists to return to local boozers.

He explained: "Busier bars with larger turnovers have been selling beer at low cut prices for some time, and it's realistic to think they will have offers, like a pint for €1 or as low as 64 cents (50p). It's about volume of sales." Well, one thing's for sure - 50p'll do us just fine.

Ken Thomas, a beer importer, added: "I've had a lot of interest from Benidorm especially in Spain looking for cut price deals on our lesser brands, it seems beer is the ingredient businesses are going to use to encourage back the punters, going to paradise for the beer drinking holidaymaker."

Ian Pratt, who runs a local business in Benidorm said: "We are all going to be watching what we spend once the lockdown is lifted. If you can go out for a drink for the same price as drinking at home, why wouldn't you?

"I doubt we are talking about high end hotels and other venues, but the local bars, like all businesses, are going to do what they have to do to attract customers."

This comes after the news that 50 million pints could go to waste in the UK as pubs remain closed during the government-imposed lockdown.

The figure comes from the chief executive of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA), Tom Stainer, who told the BBC he estimates the UK's 39,000 pubs have on average 15 barrels in their cellar at any time.

Most of these are kegs will be kegs containing 11 gallons (88 pints) each, although many real ales also come in nine-gallon (72-pint) casks.

Let's all bring some positivity, support and fun to anyone who might find themselves in isolation as a result of the coronavirus spread. Need some entertainment? Join Isolation Nation: https://www.facebook.com/groups/coronasupport/
