With the start of the 2018 World Cup a few days away, Close Brothers Brewery Rentals are anticipating a boost for the food and drinks trade this summer. After a slower than anticipated start to the year, beer sales are set to soar as pubs and bars attract customers keen to watch live matches and enjoy the atmosphere.
