Brits to Enjoy 31 Million Pints this Weekend
As Britain prepares to bask in the Saharan bubble heatwave this weekend, an eye-watering 31 MILLION pints of beer will be drunk in local pubs and beer gardens. With almost a third (32%) of Brits enjoying sitting in their local during the summer months, UK pub-goers plan to drink four beers on their perfect summer’s day.
With 7.8 million Brits heading to the pub this weekend, Greene King, the UK’s leading managed pub company and brewer, has found the nation’s ideal formula for a sunny day.
With the summer session kicking off at 13:50pm, Brits are choosing early afternoon to begin quenching their thirst.
Spending on average three and a half hours in the pub and ideally surrounded by six friends/ family, two fifths of the nation would choose a salad (40%) to accompany their drink, over the nation’s favourite pub classic, fish and chips (21%).
