Who Would You Like To Toast A Beer Tax Cut With?

Sponsored post

British beer is over-taxed. The British beer drinker pays almost 40% of all beer duty in the EU despite only drinking 12% of the beer. In Britain, the average pint of 5% ABV beer is taxed to the tune of 52p, whilst the equivalent figure in Germany is just 4p. This is despite welcome cuts in beer duty from the Chancellor in his last three Budgets.

We want George Osborne to help secure the recovery of the brewing and pub sector and cut beer tax for an historic fourth time. The short animation above sets out our case for a cut.

Beer is our national drink. Pubs are the heart of our communities. Each year, 3 billion pints and almost 1 billion meals are served in pubs the length and breadth of the country. Seven in ten drinks sold in pubs are beer.

We want to know which of today’s most prominent politicians you’d most like to have a pint in the pub with.

 

A fourth beer duty cut would secure jobs and investment in UK pubs. Pubs and brewing support almost 900,000 jobs in the UK and provide £13bn to the economy. Visit www.beerandpubjobs.co.uk where you can try your hand at being the Chancellor and see the positive impact of cutting beer duty. Join the campaign to #cutbeertax and email your MP asking for their support, or share on social media.
