A pint of Punk IPA beer would cost £27.50 if prices were put up in line with soaring energy bills, a brewery and pub chain boss claims.

BrewDog CEO James Watt also claimed that a burger and fries would set back diners “about £48.75” if prices matched those of rising energy costs.

Posting to LinkedIn, Mr Watt warned that chancellor Jeremy Hunt would only “make the situation worse when he rows back support for business energy bills from April”.
