The British Beer & Pub Association is advising publicans to ensure they have submitted applications to destroy their spoilt beer before the end of July, to avoid charges from water companies.
The trade association said it had hoped water companies would continue to waiver fees and cut bureaucracy for the disposal of spoilt beer in pubs.
Unfortunately though, the water industry has now set deadlines for each region of the UK indicating when applications must be received from pubs wishing to destroy their spoilt beer, under the emergency measures currently in place.
To help publicans destroy their spoilt beer, the BBPA and its members set up a free website for publicans to use, guiding them on how to destroy their beer safely and in an environmentally friendly manner.
Licensees can also record destruction through the platform enabling duty to be claimed back by brewers, who will then agree the means of reimbursing the customer.
Licensees with questions on how to destroy their beer can also email firstname.lastname@example.org for further support.
