Hundreds of people criticized the move and many said they would cancel their CAMRA membership because of it.

CAMRA was blasted for this "tasteless and insensitive" pint glass with a Covid theme for its 2020 beer festival glasses.

Twitter user @WithintheWalls was outraged that the company celebrated 41,449 deaths with Coronavirus glasses and "What utter disrespect?"

Another Twitter user @ashleymeerkat was so incredulous that she asked if the designer was already "drunk" when he got the idea.

Twitter user @Jesslionman said, & # 39; Uh … Well, here's a myopic ad. Shame on you, CAMRA, I guess you will lose a lot of respect for this! & # 39;

And Twitter user @Gary_Anderson said he couldn't believe the glass design was ever "approved" and said, "I know it's" just a glass, "but how does the whole chain of work on the design, commissioning, Approval and manufacture of this design was involved glass everyone agreed that this was a good idea is incredible & # 39;

Hundreds of social media users took to Twitter to show their disgust at CAMRA's decision to bring the pint glass to market

Manchester brewery Beer Nouveau retweeted the post from CAMRA and added, “I can see what their intentions were with. But this is a seriously poor implementation of the idea, and the following non-apology won't help. & # 39;

Some have defended glass design, saying, "It's the quintessentially British thing to take detrimentally what hurt, repressed and influenced you and make it a fun figure."

The design was released in support of this year's Great British Beer Festival, which has gone virtual for the 2020 edition and is due to take place next weekend.

Following the backlash, CAMRA issued a public apology and statement.

Festival organizer Catherine Tonry said: “As someone who has suffered permanent lung damage after contracting COVID-19, I am all too aware of how serious the disease can be and the devastating and long-term effects it has on many of us had.

“I sincerely apologize to everyone who insulted the glass issue.

“We choose a theme every year and wanted to make sure the design recognized what was on everyone's lips.

& # 39; COVID-19 was the defining event of 2020 and has had a major impact on the beer and pub sectors as well as many of our personal lives.

“In fact, it's the first time we've hosted the festival digitally in over 40 years since we hosted the Great British Beer Festival.

"We hope that, despite the difficulties many face, the festival will give people the opportunity to come together over a beer and discover new brewers and cider producers to support them during this time of uncertainty."

The Great British Beer Festival is the UK's largest trade and consumer fair for the brewing industry.
