Administrators fail to keep Cains beer flowing

Some Merseyside pubs have run dry of
beer but the brewer’s administrators, PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), says any
problems should be ironed out this week.

A PwC spokesman told the Liverpool Dail Post issues with deliveries
of Cains might be occurring in cases where middle-man distributors were
involved, but he expected them to be resolved ‘some time this week’.

Rita Smith, licensee at Peter Kavanagh’s, in Egerton Street, Toxteth, said
she had been unable to buy any Cains from the pub’s owner Enterprise Inns and
was instead buying in other real ales.

The Globe, in Liverpool city centre, has also run out of the iconic brew and
The Railway, in Formby, reported it had been unable to buy Cains last week.
