Belgian beer prices set to rise
25 August 2004
BRUSSELS – The price of a glass of Stella or Jupiler beer will go up by 3.4 percent from 1 September, it emerged on Wednesday.
This will mean paying 12 cents more for your glass of beer.
The rise comes just eight months after a 2.5 percent increase in January.
According to the world’s largest beer brewer, Interbrew, prices are spiralling because of increased energy costs and more expensive raw materials.
