Beoir very much welcomes the announcement at Budget 2016 that the excise relief for microbreweries will now be available upfront. This will improve the cash flow for these small and medium businesses which we hope in turn will help further develop this value sector of the Irish economy. For the second year running, the current Government has helped incentivise small indigenous beer producers which they have recognised as an important and growing part of the Irish agriculture and food sector.
We would have very much liked to see movement in the excise relief for Irish artisanal cider makers in line with that of the microbreweries, but we are heartened to see the government again recognises the role microbreweries play in the Irish economy.
 
Yours sincerely

A short essay by Webb at the front of the book charts the origin of the guide and announces his retirement from it. That means the next one will have a different feel to the current edition, because this is not simply a list of Belgian pubs and breweries, but rather a series of personal observations. This unusual approach really captures the idiosyncracies of Belgium's beer culture.
