A passion for beer and pubs

We are the UK's leading trade association representing pubs and breweries. Our members brew over 90% of British beer and own over 20,000 pubs.

We are the voice of pubs and brewers, offering insight and policy thinking to government, political stakeholders and media alike to help ensure that there is an in-depth understanding of both the opportunities and challenges faced by the sector and the policy solutions to bring about the optimal fiscal and policy framework that will underpin a thriving pub and brewing sector in the UK. 

Membership provides access to policy expertise and specialist data relevant to the brewers and pubs that are operating in every community, indeed, in every political constituency, across the UK. 

The BBPA's 2024 Manifesto for Brewers and Pubs

Alongside the BBPA’s pre-existing demands for lower beer duty, long-term business rates, and a 12.5% Hospitality VAT rate, this year's manifesto also called for providing incentives and tax relief for green investments, an immediate review and holistic business impact assessment of the current packaging waste and collection reforms and more.
