The UK Beer Price League Table 2023


Forget the Premier League – this is the only league table that needs refreshing on a weekly basis.

Here at StagWeb.co.uk, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to find the average pint prices in the UK for 2023, so not only our stags, but every beer-thirsty person in the country can see how the cost of their beer stacks up.

From Bristol to Belfast, Edinburgh to Exeter, we’ve crunched the numbers and found the cheapest (and most expensive) destinations for a pint of beer.

It was thirsty work, but by God you’re worth it!

The Draught Lager Price Drama 🍺

  • £0.93 increase from 2018
  • £1.28 increase from 2013
  • £1.82 increase from 2008

  3. Enter Pint-xG! By adding the price discrepancy to the price of the pint, we’ve calculated what people can expect to pay in other establishments in the area
