Coronavirus is having a significant impact on breweries nationally as they look for ways to survive the pandemic.With a boom in on-line brewery shops, the proportion of bottle and keg dispense is rising. Here's hoping that Cask sales rise just as dramatically when the pandemic is over.
Prior to Coronavirus, just over half of the beer brewed at Swannay Brewery went into cask. The remaining production went into bottle and keg dispense. The brewer has now invested in a canning line which will permit beer to be packaged on-site before shipped off the island, giving the brewery greater control over distribution and makes their beer 100% Orkney.
