Federal Beer Tax Bills Compared

bill
Motley Fool has an interesting overview and comparison of the two bills regarding the restructuring of federal beer excise taxes currently before Congress, and likely to be resolved this year. The two bills, known as the BEER Act and the Small Brew Act (which Motley Fool calls the “Small Beer Act”), are both designed to reduce federal excise taxes, but in different ways, benefitting different size breweries differently. Which bill, if any, will pass is anybody’s guess at this point, but check out Beer May Be In For a Tax Break — Why This Could Be Bad for Some Brewers for one financial website’s take on them.

    Great rundown of the two bills and I like their take on why Boston Beer and CBA might be throwing their support behind the less lucrative bill. I would like to have seen two additions to the tables. I would like to have seen the status quo added to both tables. And I would like to have seen the avg/barrel price for at least one of the megas added to the second table.
