first food and gas now the price of beer rises

16 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The rising cost of food and fuel is driving up the price of beer.

Global demand and a bad year for hops, barley and wheat in Europe and Australia have tightened supplies. And, with higher transportation costs, beer makers said they have no choice but to raise prices.

Robin Ottaway of Brooklyn Brewery said, "Our costs have been up roughly 12 to 15 percent and the reality is they're still going up in some cases."

Retail analysts estimate some brands are now costing a dollar more for a 6-pack. The price increase is less for the bigger brands because of the large volume of sales.

According to the Internal Revenue Service, the 400 richest American households earned a total of $US138 billion, up from $US105 billion a year earlier. That's an average of $US345 million each, on which they paid a tax rate of just 16.6 per cent.

I've already stopped driving as much, but I don't know if I'll be able to stop drinking beer as much!

It may have something to do with the price of tea in China.
