All the way from Tuam
Letter from a Belgian brewery which has been supplying a private customer in this country for a number of years -
“Dear customer of the House of Gueuze,
The United Kingdom has left the European Union early 2020. From 1st January 2021 onwards, new customs rules will be applied on the import of alcoholic beverages such as beer in the United Kingdom. The administrative burden is so complicated that we sadly enough had to decide to stop delivering to the UK when the new rules come into place.
In order to be sure that all packages will arrive in time n England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, we will stop taking orders from UK customers on December 23rd, 2020 at 23:00 GMT. This way we want to make sure that all parcels get through customs and to their destination before the actual Brexit. I apologise for the inconvenience this might cause.
I sincerely want to thank you for loyal support over the past years. It was a pleasure to have you as our customer. I hope that one day, politicians will come to their senses and will make trade between the EU and the UK more easily with less paperwork and no import duties. When this happens, we will resume our shipments to the UK.
Once again, thank you and I hope that we may meet at one of the Lambic festivals or events in the near future.
And that Belgian brewery will be typical of hundreds or thousands of businesses on the continent.
Never mind though, we didn't really need quality products like that, and the Stella brewed in South Wales might be cheaper !
