The Birmingham German Christmas Market in 2021 was the 21st event – but celebrations came at a price. That's also the year when the cost of a pint and a bratwurst smashed through the £10 barrier for the first time.
Prices had held steady for the four years from 2015 to 2019, when the cost of a bratwurst went up by 12.5 per cent from £4 in 2015-18 to £4.50. When the market returned last year after the Covid-19 break in 2020, the price for a standard bratwurst had risen again – to £5. Meanwhile, a half-metre (20-inch) bratwurst had increased to £7, up from £6.50 in 2019 and just £6 the year before, 2018.
Adding in the £5.50 price of a pint in 2021 to a standard bratwurst took the combined cost of a banger and a beer to £10.50. A year ago, an original Munchner Bier was £4 for a half pint (up 50p from the 2015-19 price) and £5.50 for a pint (up by 50p from 2019 and £1 above the 2018 price). The cost of a double pint in 2021 was £10.50 – that had increased by £1 since 2019 and was £1.50 higher than the £9 price which had previously held steady from 2015-18.
