Senator Shumer Seeks Tax Cuts For NY Small Brewers

Senator Chuck Shumer recently visited Cooperstown Brewery in Milford, New York to talk tax cuts.  A lot of politicians are starting to see the benefit of stimulating the small brewing business.

The proposal would cut the excise tax in half, from $7 to $3.50 for the first 60,000 barrels.  That equates to 210,000 in savings, potentially creating a new job at the brewery.  Cooperstown only employes 5 full timers, and 2 part time individuals.  [NewsChannel34]
