Graduated Tax Structure Issue – Ep. 106

So you think you know what’s going on behind the American Craft Beer scene that we all love so much? Not so fast! As David Little and our resident brewer and Brewers Association board member John Pinkerton explain in this week’s episode of Beer America TV. “Beer Wars” gave us all some insight on what brewers face day-to-day, but there is a bigger battle brewing right now that can effect the very growth of the industry. You can help, and we’ll tell you how!

    I’m never a fan of cliff-edge tax thresholds as (to your point) they are prohibitive of growth and force companies to reconsider growing. Your point about Sweetwater is a valid one. This bill is certainly better than the old structure, but why not just have a flat tax rate on beer production? Why do we have to have tax thresholds at all on beer?

    I hope it works for them as well! One of my 2 favorite breweries are Bell’s and Terrepin, and I can’t get either in Texas. This bill getting passed could help them grow enough so we ALL can enjoy their great beers!!

    For better than half our history the constitution’s ‘Commerce Clause’ has been hotly debated, misapplied and even used as a political weapon. The original intent, some argue, was that of encouraging and promoting commerce between the states, to give congress the power to strike down laws or regulations that unfairly hindered or discriminate with respect to commerce and not primarily a role of ‘controlling’ via taxation nor to use interstate commerce as a source of revenue for the federal government. The debate has even included consulting dictionaries of the time period to determine just what the words used actually meant to the framers. This issue has tentacles that reach through our whole system, it’s huge. As for me “Less is More” when it comes to taxation such as this issue, and it’s not just because I like good beer. Keep up the fight.

    I do believe it is a federal tax as it affects all small breweries
