Regressive? Progressive?

What are the implications for the price of a pint in a pub? Will this affect the low price model followed by JDW?

They say it won't.

Anyone have a link to the actual heads of bill? I can only find the press release and news coverage.

Don't think it will effect pub price, look like the mini price per unite of alcohol is 0.60-1.00.

Its really going top punish your weekend end wine drinker, mini price of a bottle could be 8-10 euro.

Here is the formal to work out a possible minimum price Vbeerx%abv/1000= unite of alcohol,then multiply by 1 (euro) for the possible upper min price per unite.

I give up looking. They must not have been released to the public yet. Maybe later today.

If its set at 1 euro per unite, a 4.2% pint would have a min price of 2.38!

Has anyone thought:

1. Raising the minimum price will not stop the demand

2. The price increase now nets the fekers extra VAT!

3. The minimum price will just go up every year in the budgets.

License to print money or what?

Next thing they'll be giving everyone a "conservation grant" of €100 through the social welfare system, whether they drink beer or not.

Oh wait...

Article in the mirror claiming loophole.
This has come up again and again but it's never been cleared up. At least that I know of.

He added: “As it contains no chemicals, there are no hangovers.”

I think this statement just about sums up how smart a move that article was.

So you heard it straight from the horses mouth there. Aclohol isn't a chemical after all. :lol:

The draft bill wrote:It shall be an offence to: Sell or supply alcohol products on the licensed premises at a price that is below the minimum price of that product concerned;
So that's the end of your free samples of chablis in Donnybrook Fair, right? No more meet-the-brewer nights or homebrew meetings either. The end of taste-before-you-buy at the bar. Am I reading this right, or is there a reason everyone else isn't screaming?
