Beer is losing its head to wine

The traditional British drinking occasion, a beer or two in the pub, is under threat. Wine sales will grow by over GBP1 billion between 2003-08 due, in part, to the British becoming more continental in their habits, drinking at home or in restaurants rather than in pubs and bars. Wine's success is also driven by increased drinking among women, who account for more than half of wine consumption.

Beer sales are still suffering from a recessionary hangover

Below-cost alcohol pricing: lenient proposals may give way to stronger measures

Proposals put forward by the UK government for minimum pricing only include tax outlays, not the cost of producing the alcohol itself, and as a result have been slammed by many health organizations as being likely to have little or no effect on consumer drinking habits. However, it seems probable that future changes to the policy will result in laws less favorable to the drinks industry.
