Budget? We’ll drink to that!

Despite drinkers up and down the country fearing another hike in beer duty in yesterday’s budget, the Chancellor announced that duty has been frozen (until the next budget at least). BeerHeadZ have decided to add to this good news by actually CUTTING the price of a pint by 20p to celebrate the opening of the new BeerHeadZ Nottingham to be followed in the New Year by Melton Mowbray and Lincoln. Reducing our prices, however, means we are no longer going to be able to extend our current 10p pint discount to loyalty card holders (which we have held for over three years) beyond December 1st. But be assured that there will be great offers in the future, starting very soon with a special promotion from the Cat Asylum brewery. Please remember that BeerHeadZ serve all our beers in oversize, lined …

I read, with a shudder, the news story from the Morning Advertiser‘s website that a Morrisons supermarket in Guiseley, West Yorkshire, has just installed a bar serving draught cask and craft beers. I have long since said that the only advantage that pubs have over supermarkets is that they sell draught beer and that the only reason that supermarkets don’t is that nobody has yet thought about it. Sadly, this is no longer the case. Supermarkets have a lot to answer for. They have all but destroyed the high street, closing local independent businesses such as butchers and green grocers and decimating traditional market stalls across the country. They happily sell absurdly cheap alcohol which is then drunk at home, on the street, or by pre-loaders before their visits to the pubs and clubs, but do not have to deal …
