BEER SET TO EASE TOP UP ON HEADY INFLATION
Report By Dominic Bonner.
DRINKERS are yet again to pay the price of inflation, as nationally the price of a pint is
set to rise on Monday.
It is often seen by the public as a somewhat cynical pre-budget move by breweries and public houses as a way of hiking prices up further. In order to squeeze the modest purse strings of taxpayers before chancellor Gordon Brown sets his annual levy on the price of alcohol.
A Southport drinker said, "This is yet another tax on a social past time that has seen prices of alcohol rise steadily over the last twenty years. It comes as no surprise and can only be seen as a cynical move by the breweries as they are set to cash in even further with the twenty four hour licensing laws to be introduced this summer."
The price of bitter is set to rise by seven pence with the price of a pint of lager to receive a whopping twenty pence on its current over frothed value. But with haulage, yeast and production costs increasing slightly in line with inflation, it is believed that the government's budget for this year is not likely to dampen drinker's spirits too much.
