So why can't pubs sell take away booze this time?

So they go out of business and Tim Martin gets even richer?

Looks like it:

Still, 99p a pint at your local Brexity Covid hive until Wednesday night! Fill yer boots! Have a really crap meal! Get into a fight!

This is really shit. I was in my favourite Embra pub when it closed at 6pm at the start of the Scottish Central Belt lockdown and they only had two ales on because they had decided to try and limit the number of kegs/casks they had open to reduce waste. Presumably they've been able to keep a load of sealed ones in the cellar. They're lucky because they're a small pub with a small cellar and had time to prepare for this eventuality, larger pubs in England with more stock and less time to prepare will be fucked.

Also parts of England may well be Gary Central on Wednesday night.

Pub/beer twitter is going apeshit. I'm already disillusioned from all their endless complaining about everything and pseudo-scientific grasping at every expedient nugget going to muster supporting them, despite fully passionately agreeing with them. Once you've heard someone claim their pub is "covid-secure" you can't help but immediately lose respect for them.

I assume someone in power, somewhere needs to justify this pretty quickly.

U turned on Tuesday, so takeaway sales are back on. So long as you pre-order by phone or app.
