Bury St Edmunds pub boss looks for outlets to help sell his beer as Covid restrictions tighten




A pub owner is looking for help from businesses able to stock and sell his beer.

The Old Cannon Brewery, on Cannon Street, Bury St Edmunds, has had to halt sales of its own-brand beer to the public – for collection – due to current Covid-19 regulations.

The pub, restaurant and brewery, which sells its beer in bottles and sealed fridge pouches can, however, still make deliveries, which it also does for Sunday lunches.

Managing partner Charlie Gerard is now asking any retailers allowed to remain open, such as garden centres, off licences and supermarkets, to get in touch if they can stock and sell his award-winnming Old Cannon beer.

He said: ‘If any licensed retailer has the freedom to temporarily stock our beers, our regular customers, and our beer, will be with them like a shot.”
