The UK has only two plants producing carbon dioxide and one is closed for maintenance, threatening to leave drinks makers high and dry.
"It's already stopping production," said Brigid Simmonds, head of the British Beer and Pub Association.
...
CO2 comes from ammonia plants that manufacture fertiliser. But as demand for fertiliser peaks in winter, manufacturers often shut down during the summer for maintenance work.
Currently at least five CO2 producers across northern Europe are offline for maintenance >>

Jumping Jehoshaphat.

You turn your back for five minutes and the world descends into chaos.

Fortunately, I have a secret stash for just this sort of emergency.

You can brew bubbles into your beer, unless you prefer toxic waste in it.

When I canoed across part of Canada, I stayed with the Mayhew family on the shore of Lake Erie.

He makes good beer. I'll bet he wasn't mad at all.

Last strike I remember was by the draymen.

Everyone was reduced to drinking Carlsberg Special Brew.

Messy times.

Ours happened in 1985....the year I graduated high-school......cheers





"Beer drinkers were in a tough spot thirty years ago this month as a strike involving all of the local breweries dragged on.

With workers at the Carling-O'Keefe, Labatt and Molson breweries all on picket lines, there was not much to drink at bars and clubs, although the strike gave rise to U.S. imports like Old Milwaukee and Lone Star.

For Throwback Thursday this week, we have two reports from May 1985. The first, by John Penney from Corner Brook, looks at the harsh effect the strike had on the hospitality industry. The second, by Ken Lawton from St. John's, reports on how hundreds of consumers swooped to a liquor store when a shipment of beer arrived.

The strike, which had started the preceding month, would drag on for quite a bit longer. It was not resolved until November, meaning consumers had no access to their favourite local brands for more than seven months. "
