If You Haven't Done So Already...

Please take a moment to read Jeff Alworth's great summary of Oregon's HB 2461, which would increase the state's beer tax to $49.61 a barrel. That's an increase of 1900%. It would make Oregon's beer tax the highest in the nation by a very wide margin.

This tax would undoubtedly kill much of Oregon's fine craft brewing industry. It's imperative that every person who appreciates Oregon's unique beer culture make public their dissatisfaction with this bill. Write your representatives. Talk to your friends and family. This bill can't pass.
