Commentating on another historic beer duty cut in today’s Budget, Shepherd Neame chief executive and chairman of the British Beer and Pub Association, Jonathan Neame, said: “This is exceptional news for the UK beer and pubs sector. Last year’s cut was warmly welcomed, but it is clear the Treasury accepts the position that sustained support of the industry will secure jobs and investment.”
 
“Beer has once again been singled out from other forms of alcohol, and for good reason: it is a lower-strength drink. Beer and pubs make a huge contribution to British economy and to the local communities they serve."
