The price of barley and metal, used for making cans, has gone up by more than 50 per cent in the past two years, while the company's energy costs have soared by more than 150 per cent in some cases. For the punter this equates to an average pint of lager now ringing in at £2.82.
But in London and south-east England, drinkers face significantly higher prices. 'The current wave of price increases means £4 a pint will be far more commonplace this year,' said a spokesman for the British Beer & Pub Association.
