Pub Price Watch

Earlier this year, I asked landlords in North Somerset to submit the prices they are charged to buy their beer. I was particularly concerned that the viability of some pubs was being undermined by suppliers operating a “divide and rule” policy when it comes to beverage pricing. Here are the results so far: 

 

 

  

Guinness

Minimum: £141

Maximum: £167

Fosters

Minimum: £127

Maximum: £154

Stella Artois

Minimum: £146

Maximum: £170

Butcombe

Minimum: £81

Maximum: £103

Sharpe’s Doom Bar

Minimum: £91

Maximum: £113

Bath Gem

Minimum: £86

Maximum: £108

Heineken

Minimum: £156

Maximum: £183

Carlsberg

Minimum: £139

Maximum: £180

Carling

Maximum: £162

John Smith’s

Strongbow

Dry Blackthorn

As you can see, there are already some huge variations in prices. For any landlords who haven't filled in the questionnaire yet, it's not too late. Please keep sending them in!
