Listen On Goodpods

The last few years have been challenging for both Australian brewers and beer enthusiasts, with the latest increase in the CPI tax only adding to the already tight pinch.
Increasing by 7.8 per cent, which is a higher than usual increase, the price of a schooner at your local is expected to soar to around $12.
Currently, Australia has the fourth highest beer tax in the world, which not only affects consumers’ wallets but also threatens small breweries and local businesses.
