Should Small Beer Brewers Get A Tax Break?

Argument in favor

Small breweries are the fastest growing arm of the U.S. beer industry and reducing excise taxes will help producers and consumers alike.

Taxes on alcoholic beverages are suprisingly high (with some precedent). These same taxes make it particularly difficult for small brewers to get into business in the first place. Let's give them a break, so they can get started and we can enjoy their product.

Lower taxes on beer production → Less overhead for producers → Cheaper beer for consumers.

Small businesses + tax break = increased competition, bigger pie for everyone, lots of tasty beer

Argument opposed

Losing tax revenue for the federal government aside, why doesn’t this tax cut apply to all brewers — small and large?

No, we don't need to make the tax code more complicated. Instead, the excise tax on beer should be repealed completely.

This amounts to a subsidy. Subsidies are abhorrent.

Again we are discussing doing more of the anti constitutional business of picking winners and losers.
