    It has been suggested on social media by a few people to either set up a fund or buy "gift vouchers" now for future redemption.


    Personally I will be out later stocking up on bottles and cans, possibly even looking for some home brew ingredients, I will then be visiting a few pubs.

    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    The reason why my partner and I have had to curtail our pub visits, is because, he is on lots of meds for "underlying health issues." I hope if and when we all come out the other side, we will be able to resume our beloved visits to the pub.

    I had an email this morning from one of Sheffield's new pubs, Two Thirds Beer Co. They are encouraging people to come in for a carry out, and introducing an online (or phone) ordering and delivery service. Read their message on Twitter @twothirdsbeerco.

    I've heard of two in my area who are planning to set up Take away/Home delivery service. I'm just back from the offy with a dozen mixed bottles, Beer Hawk order going in later then off to the pub while I still can.

    Take away would be good, and could work. Has anyone experience of on line beer distributors/websites? I had thought of ordering direct from the brewery,but the small firms I would like to support either don't can/bottle or don't have much of a site.Also,our internet connection is glacially slow.

    I've used Beer Hawk since before it was taken over and find the choice and service usually excellent.

    Here's a list of breweries with on-line shops that I know about, I'm sure there are others.
