Oregon Beer Tax = EPIC FAIL…Oregon Beer = EPIC SUCCESS…Mutineer Magazine = EPICALLY EPIC


That’s right people, the big bad beer tax that was proposed in Oregon was shot down like the terrible idea it was. When I caught wind of this, first I was pissed, then I was confused, then I wasn’t confused, then I was pissed again. Basically a group of Oregon politicians led by Democrat, John Krasinski look-alike, Ben Cannon from Oregon’s 46th District looked to shoot the Oregon beer industry in the face with ridiculously high taxes, I guess to try and make up for other budget shortcomings. TERRIBLE IDEA. If an industry is thriving, don’t destroy it with high taxes. I may be biased, but I’m fair, so if you’re unfamiliar with the issue, check out this article interviewing Gary Fish of Deschutes Brewery and a Rep. Cannon staff member that we ran as the Final Word in the April/May issue of Mutineer Magazine and also on the blog while this was still an undecided issue.

    Awesome win for the breweries and beer consumers of Oregon. Unfortunately this isn’t an isolated incident and it’s happening all over our country. Here’s an example, which is from Indiana: http://stopthebeertax.com/
