Under the ravages of the new crown pneumonia, many countries have implemented closure measures, people are trapped at home, and bars and restaurants are closed. A French brewing industry organization said that more than 10 million liters of beer are expected to be forced to be dumped because the bar and restaurant are still closed. The “alcohol” is enough to fill the four Olympic-standard swimming pools.

The French Beer National Federation said that because of the impact of the epidemic, the beer will expire before it can be consumed and must be discarded. Most of these are draft beer, which will deteriorate quickly.

The chairman of the federation Kostil said that most of the beer is still in the barrel. He criticized the local government for shutting down bars and restaurants in response to the epidemic. The tourism industry was also halted. Exhibitions and many cultural activities had to be cancelled, which wasted the beer.

In Germany, all stores can be restarted under certain conditions this month. Some breweries distribute 2600 liters of beer to the public for free to prepare for re-opening of wine barrels.

In addition, South African Breweries pointed out that South Africa’s anti-epidemic blockade measures and the prohibition of alcohol sales have caused the company to destroy 400 million bottles of beer, about 130 million liters.
