I found this nice map of the 50 states with the individual beer excise tax brewers in each state has to pay in addition to the federal excise taxes at Charlie Papazian’s blog, too. It’s originally from Don’t Tax Our Beer, a website maintained by the Tax Foundation.
The map provides an interesting snapshot of all the states. It’s worth noting that all the southern states have high excise taxes on beer, where the idea of drinking being sinful is, I think, more prevalent.

Are you sure that’s not oil? Some of the states are truly ridiculous.
