Licensees face raft of beer price hikes in 2012
Licensees have entered 2012 facing a raft of price hikes from major brewers.
Wholesale drinks prices for 2012 have risen by as much as 9p a pint from some brewers, with many citing increased production, material, utility and duty costs.
Heineken UK will be raising the wholesale selling prices of its beers from 6 February. Its biggest-selling lager brand Foster‚??s will rise by £19.79 per barrel or 7p per pint at wholesale selling price. Its draught and packaged ciders prices increased this month, with the price of Strongbow up by ¬£19.31 per barrel, which equates to just under 7p per pint.
Diageo is to up the price of Guinness Draught by 5% (excluding duty and VAT) and Guinness Surger by 7% (excluding Duty and VAT) on 1 February 2012.
Wells & Young‚??s has increased the wholesale selling price of its own brewed beers by 4.9% from this month.
For Charles Wells licensees, this rise will be absorbed until June 2012 then, a subsidised rise of 3.5% will be introduced.
The news comes after have Molson Coors increased wholesale prices to the on-trade by, on average, £19.99 per barrel, or 7p per pint.
And InBev UK, the Stella Artois, Budweiser and Beck‚??s brewer, increased the wholesale prices of its brands by 7.8% (duty exclusive) or 9p a pint this month due to increases in costs on raw materials and energy.

It's not just the beer JRS, the wine seems to be taking a hike as well. I was in Tesco's yesterday and was amazed at how much they were charging for even the lowliest of plonk !! I've given Laithwaites a go at the moment, not cheap, but most of the wines (so far) are of good quality. Good time to cut back on one's drinking methinks...(heavens forbid).

yup, the price of a pint could easily jump by 20p over the next few months. The pubcos are going to put the licensees to the sword to save their highly leveraged butts then the treasury will take it's annual pound of flesh
