Time to Brew

Barod have teamed up with our partners Kaleidoscope, to deliver the #TimeToBrew campaign. The campaign aims to ‘Build Resilience and Ensure Well-being’ while minimising the harm associated to alcohol use during the coronavirus lockdown. As with any other life transition, whether it be kids flying the nest, retirement or adapting to the coronavirus pandemic, our relationship with alcohol can change alongside it.
