Beer could fall flat for World Cup as CO2 runs short

A shortage of CO2 could take the fizz out of beer and other sparkling drinks this summer, just as the World Cup and barbecue season get under way.

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.

She has written to CO2 producers asking them to rectify the situation.

This shouldn't affect vodka production though, right? :laugh:

Sounds like a fake shortage to drive prices up to me. The timing of it is FAR too convenient...

That is my normal drink to be honest. 

 

Only crap beer have fizz added to it, some good real ale out there, well in the UK anyway. 

Not that i am interested in the world cup what so ever.
