The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) has released new figures showing 26.6% of pints served in UK pubs contain less than 95% beer. CAMRA is mounting its campaign for a full pint launching a national petition calling on the Prime Minister to put an end to short beer measures.
At its website, CAMRA states:
- 26.6% of pints are more than 5% short measure.
- Short measure costs consumers £481 million a year, or over £1.3 million a day.
- Pubs serve customers 208 million more pints than they buy in.
CAMRA has created an online petition to make joining the protest easy.
