Welcome to the Beer & Pub Jobs website.

Here you will find a wealth of data on the positive impact the beer and pub sector has on the UK as a whole - and on every region and parliamentary constituency in the country. All the data is the result of a major study undertaken by leading consultancy Oxford Economics.

You will also be able to search for the top ranked constituencies by jobs, pubs, breweries or any other indicator for which data is presented.

National highlights:


The figures presented on this website are drawn from a comprehensive study of the economic impact of the brewing and pub sectors carried out by Oxford Economics for the British Beer & Pub Association.

Oxford Economics is a leading economic consultancy, and the British Beer & Pub Association is the UK's leading organisation representing the brewing and pub sector. Its members account for 96 per cent of the beer brewed in the UK and around half of Britain's 52,000 pubs.

Further details of the study can be found here.
