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]
