Britain’s pubs are expected to sell between 60 and 80 million extra pints of beer, and an extra 7.5 million pub meals over the four-day weekend of the Jubilee predicts the British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA).
Many of Britain’s brewers are also joining in the celebrations, with a growing list of commemorative beers being brewed to mark the occasion.
BBPA chief executive Brigid Simmonds said: “Here’s to a great Jubilee weekend for Britain’s pubs. When it comes to celebrating a great occasion, beer and pubs have so much to offer that says something special about being British. With so many great Jubilee beers on sale, I hope people visit their local to raise a glass to the Queen.”
