Our somewhat chilly winter weather has resulted in restrictions of gas supply to industry. Beer is industry, so it seems that in order to keep us all toasty at home, Robert Cain of Liverpool has been told that their gas supply is being stopped (it has happened now) until further notice. Sudarghara Dusanj, the managing director, said he was shocked when the brewery was given 12 hours’ notice to stop using gas. No date has yet been given for the return of the supply.
“We have had the brewery for eight years and this is the first time we have ever had to do this, so we didn’t have oil supplies,” Mr Dusanj told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.
Now Cains isn't everyone's favourite brewery and I dare say it will be happening elsewhere, though for now, no doubt, some will be enjoying a touch of schadenfreude at the Dusanj brothers expense..
