Beer prices will increase for many brands in Germany in the coming months. As reported by “Getränke News”, Warsteiner is the latest in a long list of breweries raising their prices.
However, it has been some time since the last price increases. The time had come for draft beer in spring 2022. The prices for bottled beer were last adjusted in October 2019. The price of the most popular Warsteiner Pilsener in a bottle has increased by EUR 6.80 per hectolitre. For draft beer, it’s 20 euros per hectolitre. The change will apply from February 1, 2023.

In addition to Warsteiner, many other breweries are also raising their prices. The products of Anheuser-Busch Inbev, which owns brands such as Beck’s, Franziskaner, Spaten and Hasseröder, will become more expensive on both January 1st and July 1st. At Heineken and Radeberger the time has already come on December 1st. Erdinger Weißbräu will also raise prices.
At Warsteiner in particular, but also at other breweries, it can be observed that the prices for draft beer are rising particularly sharply compared to bottled beer. Consumers must therefore expect higher costs, especially in pubs and restaurants.
When it comes to pensions, there are major regional differences. The pension gap between women and men in western Germany is particularly large. Another long-term trend seems to have stopped for the time being.
