One-Page Guide for Pub Staff on Destruction of Beer in Cellars
In the case of beer casks the liquid contents can be emptied directly from the container. However, unless pub staff are trained in the use of specialist equipment expressly intended for the purpose of directly decanting beer from a pressurised keg, the only way to safely dispose of keg beer is through the dispense system. Under no circumstances should attempts be made to access the keg via any other means i.e. by attempts to remove the safety spear.
