Independent brewers reap benefits of beer duty cut

SIBA Beer Report 2014 portrays thriving local brewing sector

Independent brewers are reaping the benefits of the scrapping of the beer duty escalator in last year’s Budget with increased sales.

According to Beer Report 2014, published today by the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA), its members grew volume sales by an estimated 7.9 per cent in 2013 to 1.55 million barrels – meaning the nation’s beer lovers drank nearly 33 million more pints of local beer than in 2012.

Beer Report, based on survey responses from around 250 SIBA brewers, paints a picture of an industry in rude health. As well as growing volumes, SIBA’s brewing members swelled last year by 11%, taking the total to 723. Between them, they brewed close to 10,000 different beers – including permanent and seasonal brews. They also created 900 new jobs and 60% of them made a significant capital investment in their business.

Recognising our customers. Merlin’s User of the Month for November 2013…

“After rekindling Merlin’s ‘User of the month’ campaign in October, the winner of the November ‘User of the Month’ accolade is Tim Merridew, IT Systems Manager, at Cherwell.”  As Russell Marsden, Marketing Manager declared “Tim, a trained Developer, has been selected for utilising Merlin’s Web Service Tool Set to create My Cherwell Online.”

Cherwell are a midlands based supplier of cleaning, hygiene and catering products and a leading member of the Nationwide Hygiene Group, the UK’s largest cleaning and hygiene supplies distribution group.

Tim Merridew explained that “My Cherwell Online, as its name suggests, is a customer-focussed online portal where customers can set up their account in a way which exactly matches how they go about purchasing consumables in their organisation. If required, order lists can also be defined which limit the products that an individual user is allowed to purchase and their expenditure can be controlled by setting a budget”. As Tim Merridew continued: “Merlin Business Software is written in such a way, that’s easy for an external developer, like myself, to understand quickly its underlying logic and workflow and be able to utilise this powerful resource, without the need for any specific or formal training.”
