High Alcohol Demand Increases Price

An increase in demand for beer over the festive season has given reason to bottle shop owners and distributors to increase their price.

A SolBrew worker explained to National Express that reason to increase in price is because SolBrew beers at the factory are out of stock due to very high demand.

The worker said that because of limited supply in stock, bottle shop owners and distributors decided that it was valid reason to an increase in price.

This was however not received well by customers who complained that there is no justification to the sudden price increase.

They reasoned that despite limited supply in stock, wholesale price for beers at the factory still remains the same, which gives no reason for such an increase.
