Get used to £6 pints as standard as beer prices set to rise by 30p

The Metro says Beer prices are set to rise by 30p a pint even before any duty increases are potentially announced in Rishi Sunak’s Budget, reports say.

More than eight in 10 pubs have bumped their prices or plan to do so as rising costs are passed on to punters.

This includes those caused by higher wages along with energy and supply shortages, The Times reports.
