Pumpclips are provided and remain the property of the respective breweries at all times. Casks are vessels for the supply of beer, not specific measures. Any casks delivered by AVS must be collected by AVS. If casks are not returned within a reasonable time or are lost, then the customer will be charged for the cask.


AVS must be informed upon discovery of a problem and in cases with 10 days of delivery.


  1. Cask size and number
  2. Type of beer
  3. Gyle no
  4. Best Before date
  5. Nature of problem

AVS will inform the relevant brewery immediately the complaint is received. Arrangements will be made to collect the ullage as soon as possible.

A receipt for the ullage will be issued by the driver who will dip the cask and note the volume in the ullage book, obtaining a signature and leave a copy for the customer.

AVS drivers or their agents are not normally able to collect ullage without prior notice. This is due to vehicle loading.

A credit note will be issued as soon as we receive it from the brewery concerned. Ullage credits are at the discretion of the brewery and HM Customs and Excise.

Repayment for ullage where given can only be made on the measure of the cask contents. Breweries reserve the right not to issue credit note for more than 3 gallons missing. Contents of the ullage cask must be the same as originally supplied. Credits for ullage will only be made subject to these procedures.
