CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale, will be leading celebrations for three huge campaign wins on Community Pubs Day (23rd March), a new national celebration day to highlight and promote the 600 pubs that have so far been listed as Assets of Community Value.
“CAMRA is delighted with today’s hat-trick of an unprecedented third consecutive cut in beer tax, with another penny off a pint, which will be welcomed by millions of beer-drinkers across the country. The last two cuts have already had a huge impact, saving over 1,000 pubs from closure and keeping the price of a pub pint down. Independent research by CEBR forecasts that the price of a pub pint will now be more than 20p cheaper than it would have been had the beer duty escalator remained in place.
