Beer shortage on island
A number of popular beers on the island, including Beck’s, are in short supply, according to some retailers who have run out of stock.
Bermuda Import and Export Company Ltd, the distributor of Beck’s on the island, was yesterday tight-lipped about the reported shortages.
On Thursday, Graham Fowle, managing director, was twice contacted by The Royal Gazette but declined to discuss the issue before putting the phone down. He again refused to discuss the reported shortages when approached at his office on Dundonald Street yesterday.
Some retailers have said that Beck’s beer, together with a number of other brands normally distributed by wholesaler Bermuda Import and Export Company, have been in short supply and they do not expect the situation to change until next month.
The manager of one liquor store said: “We’ve got one case of cans left. Normally we would have a few crates and bottles. Something has happened. You’ll have to hunt around to find any Beck’s.”
Pamela Douglas, manager of Buds Wines and Spirits, in Somerset, said her store ran out of Beck’s about 2½ weeks ago.
“It is a very popular beer and we have none at all at the moment.
“We would normally have plenty,” she said, adding that customers were switching to other brands until Beck’s was available again.
However, Flanagan’s Irish Pub and Restaurant on Front Street, said it still had supplies.
