Everyone in the industry is talking about beer duty. We’d prefer to let the beer do the talking.
The tax on high ABV beer in the UK is ridiculous. A blunt tool piece of legislation, designed to tackle problem drinking associated with low cost/high alcohol lager, that has unfortunately had huge (hopefully unintended) consequences for the pricing of quality craft beer.
However...some good news. We can brew a strong IPA with all the flavour and aroma you could ever desire without over stepping the tax heavy marker of 7.5% ABV.
