Virus hangover for French brewers set to dump 10 million liters of beer

May 06, 2020 - 11:55 PM

Beer that could fill 4 Olympic-sized swimming pools will go down the drain, about to expire amid France's coronavirus lockdown

(FILES) This file photograph taken on April 3, 2019, shows glasses of beer in Paris. - France will discard 10 million litres of beer -- four Olympic-sized swimming pools full -- due to expire, undrunk, with consumers in coronavirus lockdown, the national brewers' association said May 6, 2020. Most of the wasted brew is craft beer, which is often unpasteurised unlike traditional blonde lagers, and quicker to spoil, said the Brasseurs de France. The body blamed the closure of cafes and restaurants, an abrupt halt to tourism and the cancellation of festivals and expos under France's strict epidemic lockdown for leaving more than 10 million litres of beer unconsumed, most still in casks.
