Friday’s ad is another one from the United States Brewers Foundation, from 1951. This a series of ads they did in 1951 using a Q&A format aimed at highlighting different positive aspects of beer and the brewing industry.
How does the Brewing Industry compare to other industries as a taxpayer?
It ranks fourth in excise taxes alone, which amounts to almost $700,000,000 annually.
And as the ad points out, that’s in addition to “the many millions in property, income and corporation taxes paid” by breweries, not to mention state excise taxes.
