The Irish Brewer’s Association (IBA) has called on the Government to reverse last year’s excise increase on beer and cider which it said is creating significant challenges for the tourism industry and pub sector in Ireland.
The Association highlighted that 30% of the final price of a pint of beer or cider is now comprised of tax, following last year’s 22% excise increase. The Association warned that the current tax levels imposed on the sector are unsustainable and detrimental to Ireland’s economic recovery.
