NZ: Quake hits Lion Nathan beer supplies - report
Earthquake damages Lion Nathan's warehouse in NZ
Lion Nathan has reportedly lost significant amounts of beer, wine and spirits in New Zealand after its warehouse was damaged by an earthquake.
The factor 7.0 quake that struck New Zealand last weekend failed to bring down Lion Nathan's warehouse in Christchurch, but destroyed much of its contents. The Kirin Holdings-owned group has lost "considerable inventory", a spokesperson for the brewer told the Agence France Presse news agency today (7 September).
The firm's brewery, also in Christchurch, has been cleared to continue operations, the spokesperson said. The brewery produces Guinness and Becks under licence from Diageo and Anheuser-Busch InBev respectively.
There have been no reported deaths from the earthquake.
