    At around £3.25 a pint that is 325 pennies back at least, and by taking care of pennies the pounds look after themselves

    Not sure I can squeeze any more clichés in there and live

    Every one seems to have forgotten they put up VAT by 3% from 17% to 20% adding around 10p a pint. Then take a penny off and we are all supposed to be thankful. Its Smoke & mirrors again and we are not amused.

    According to Rob & Tom from Hand Drawn Monkey it saves them about 72p per barrel which is nothing to them when they have a 6 barrel plant.

    Apply the same to e.g. Fullers with several hundred thousand barrels a year and it makes a major difference.

    And as you point out HDM brewed Smaller IPA & Smaller Stout just to prove that they could get lots of flavour into a low ABV beer.
    When the Gov brought in a higher rate of duty for beers over 7.5 they also cut the duty on beers up to 2.8.Small brewers get whats called Small Brewery Beer Relief much to the annoyance of the bigger regionals but they cannot claim it for beers under 2.8. If its only a penny a pint its not worth it as the publicans would want to pay a lot less for a barrel of beer at that gravity.

    Sounds like an average night out in some places.
