BANGKOK: -- CP All has agreed to temporarily cease selling  of draft beer at its 7- Eleven convenient stores after strong opposition by anti-alcoholic networks.

 

Representatives of the two networks, the Youth Network of New Face Drinker Prevention, and the Stop Drink Network, met executives of CP All, which owns and  operates all 7-Eleven convenience stores in the country, on Friday and submitted them protesting note.

 

In a negotiation, the company agreed to temporarily halt the selling of draft beer, pending consultation with its top management, and it’s executive board.

Those who drink and drive do it successfully by buying cans from 7/11 and drink them in the car, behind 7/11 or even in front of 7/11. So banning selling draft beer doesn't make a big difference. Anyway I think draft beer is way more appealing, which might scare the people against alcohol.

7-11 sells draft beer? Or do they mean canned and bottled beer, which isn't draft beer. School's out and I could have used a pint of lunchtime lager this week.

Some have been selling draft beer certainly not all outlets at this stage.

So, if draught beer dispensers are maybe going to be outlawed in the 7's will there be any chance of buying a secondhand one to put in my front room do you think?

 

That would save me the 500yds (I'm English, I don't do foreign measurements :smile: ) trek to the 7.

I'm missing something here. I think only 2 countries still use imperial measurements. I thought English = metric ?

What kind of draft beer was 7/11 selling?  Did they start brewing their own brand?

 

If they do beer slurpees I hope they open some drive-thrues as well.

 

I'll have the stout slurpee please.
