Message In a Barrel

Bob added his voice to a campaign by the British Beer & Pub Association, the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) and the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) by sending a ‘Message in a Barrel’ calling on the Chancellor of the Exchequer to cut beer duty in the Budget on 16th March.

Beer tax in the UK remains far higher than that neighbouring European countries. In Germany, for example, the rate of tax on beer is some thirteen times lower than here in the UK.
