- UK taxes on beer remain among the highest compared with other countries, with the second highest duty rate in EU -ten times higher than in Germany, and seven times higher than in France.
- Ale's market share is increasing: The UK ale market increased its market share of all beers in 2009 for the first time since the 1960s.
