Although you might have had hopes of an excellent start to the New Year, however, it’s looking to be drier than you expected.
Many Brits are likely to be upset to hear that 2022 could be in danger of starting with a beer shortage.
One of the beers that are likely to go unnoticed is the highest popularity.
The staff who deliver beer working at GXO Logistics are threatening to strike during the coming year.

According to a YouGov survey, Heineken is currently the most well-known beer brand.
But, union bosses claim the people responsible for delivering 40% of the work are exhausted and have trouble paying their charges.
Draymen, a subsidiary of GXO Logistics, transport beer to 20,000 bars, clubs, and restaurants throughout the UK.
However, over the last nine months, more than 1,700 employees are said to have been affected by a change to the payroll system.
The General Secretary Sharon Graham said: “It is unacceptable. The payroll system implemented by GXO is an absolute mess that has caused a lot of anxiety because wages are too short or not paid in time. GXO’s bosses must solve this issue quickly.
“A ballot to vote on a strike could result in deliveries being significantly disrupted by 2022.”
Around 99 percent of Unite members have voted to be taken in the coming month.
Union’s Joe Clarke said: “The level of anger at being under-funded was evident in the vote.
“It is today time and energy to set a conclusion to all this chaos.”
A GXO spokesperson said to MyLondon: “Our employees are the top priority for us. Our company has been aware of the payroll problems with processing that may have affected the work of some of our colleagues. We recognize that this could have created some concern.
“We take this issue very seriously and are currently collaborating with the affected employees’ management, staff, and representatives on a case by basis to address the issue as soon as is possible.”
It doesn’t matter if you planned the event or not. There may be a dry month for more Brits than you anticipated in 2022.
