Abstract

Over the last 30 years, UK beer sales have been falling while the market itself has experienced a dynamic shift from on-trade to off-trade sales. This article provides estimates of the long-run price, cross price and income elasticities, for both on- and off-trade beer consumption. The results shed light on the changing UK beer market, while also having different implications for imposing beer excise duties and the debate on a minimum price per unit for alcohol.
