Read the full release.

At the beginning of 2015, bipartisan legislation was introduced in Congress to recalibrate the the small brewery excise tax and promote job creation. The Small BREW Act, which is supported by the Brewers Association, will allow small brewers to remain competitive in the marketplace, reinvest in their businesses, reinvigorate local economies and continue their role in rejuvenating the job market in the U.S.

Alternative excise tax legislation, entitled the BEER Act, has also been introduced in the House and gives further tax advantages to multinational brewing companies.
