"Draft Beer Server", which was planning to be released on trial basis from July 7th, was suspended due to the "reaction bigger than expected".

Why was its release suspended even there is a big reaction?

In other countries, the sale of the same product was suspended due to concerns about under-aged drinking or drunk driving.

In Thailand, Seven-Eleven started selling draft beer on trial basis at 18 stores in 2017, but a citizen's group and so on opposed against its sales as they worried that it would lead to under-aged drinking or drunk driving from a citizen's group and so on.

Also, the ministry of health of Thailand concerned about the uncertainty of the legality of selling draft beer at convenience stores, then the sale was suspended immediately after its launch.
