One in four pubs has increased the price of beer by 10 percent in six months
One in four pubs has increased the price of beer by more than 10 per cent in six months – with the average pint of lager now costing £4.23.
In the same half-year, less than a fifth of landlords kept prices the same.
The price of a pint of lager rose by 27p in January 2022 from £3.96, according to data from the Office for National Statistics.
Skyrocketing energy bills and rising commodity and labor costs are blamed for the increase.
Pubs and breweries had no choice but to raise prices, the real ale campaign said.
A pint of lager cost an average of £4.23 in January this year, compared with £3.96 in January 2022, according to data from the Office for National Statistics (file image).
The campaign also called on the government to abandon its plans to cut energy cost support in April.
The British Beer & Pub Association told the Sun: “The costs of doing business and erosion of margins are crippling pubs and breweries at an unprecedented rate.”
