Penny off a pint?

A penny comes off beer duty in the UK today following last week's Budget which also scrapped the escalator that has increased it by two per cent above inflation every year since 2008.

Whether the reduction in duty will mean a penny off a pint is another question given the rising costs of fuel, malt and other things that affect the price. But hats off to CAMRA for leading the campaign to cut beer duty which if nothing else will slow down price rises at the bar.
