On-premise sales in the UK for the week ending June 26th were down by 28% on the same week in 2019, according to the CGA’s Drinks Recovery Tracker. It is the third week in a row that the comparison with 2019 has weakened. The UK has stalled the full reopening of the on-premise sector due to an increase in COVID cases. The government has said that most restrictions on bars and restaurants should end on July 17th.
Meanwhile, in the US where all states have allowed bars and restaurants to be open indoors, either completely, or with capacity limits, on-premise sales are up 34% versus 2019 for the week ending June 26th.
