UK: A-B InBev raises beer price
InBev UK said today (6 January) that it will raise its beer prices by the equivalent of GBP0.04 per pint from 1 February.
Heineken yesterday announced an identical price rise for its own beers in the UK on-trade.
InBev said its price would apply to both the on- and off-trade. It said the move comes "within the context of continuing difficult market conditions and a challenging economic climate".
The British Beer & Pub Association has accused the Government of implementing a "stealth tax" on beer, after the Chancellor's pre-Budget Report effectively raised the price of a pint by GBP0.06.
