Pubs across Norfolk could struggle to pull pints this week, as Wetherspoon is the latest major firm to be hit by supply chain disruption.
The pub chain's supplies of Carling and Coors lager have taken a hit due to disruption caused by Covid and Brexit, it announced.
It is not known how the problems will affect the chain's branches in Norfolk, where it has pubs in Norwich, King's Lynn, Fakenham, Dereham, Thetford, Great Yarmouth, and Downham Market.
Eddie Gershon, spokesman for Wetherspoons, said: "We are experiencing some supply problems both Carling and Coors, which means that some pubs do not have the products available.
"We apologise to our customers for any inconvenience caused.

Lorry and factory shortages attributed to Brexit employment rules and the pandemic have hit supplies at other big chains such as McDonald's, Nando's and KFC in recent weeks.
