Mash Beer Tax


Yes folks the budget is coming and, unless something changes, your pint will be going up again in price. Here's a chance to do some lobbying - to try and get the government to stop killing the pub.

In 2008 the Government made a commitment to above-inflation duty increases on beer. Since then, while duty has increased by 42%, revenue has only increased by 12%

And also:
Beer is already taxed more in the UK than almost every other country in Europe. Britons pay 40% of the EU beer tax bill, but consume only 13% of the beer
