  Stockports family brewer, Robinsons have been in the news lately for a variety of reasons, all of them positive.The real good news, for Robinsons tenants and customers alike is that there are to be no beer  price increases, apart from duty for the rest of this  year.
                "Ordinarily at this time of year we would carry out a price review. This year we won't be carrying one out." said William Robinson."Looking at the industry and the economic climate we felt that, from the licensees point of view, it was not the right time to be suffering price increases." He said trading across the estate was roughly in line with the industry and tenants had been asking for rent concessions, although " not a huge number " " In it's own way [The price freeze] is as valuable and in some ways more valuable than rent concessions," he added.Robinsons have also announced a six figure investment to re-euip the Unicorn brewery with a new brewing plant to give the company much more flexibilty. This is  welcome news and a sign of the company's continued commitment to its future independence.
