    1900% increase in the beer tax!

    Now this one deserves 5 exclamation points!

    Happily it is just in the hippie haven right now:

    Looks like someone can start a bootlegging business now.

    This would warrant the Dukes to come out of retirement.

    Looks like I can scratch Oregon off my list of places to visit.

    If we're taxing the hell out of tobacco, my stance is why not?

    If Iowa were to do this, all I would do is brew my own.

    Portland has always been a little strange. Too much puffing going on.

    Maybe Oregon should think about finally imposing a sales tax instead of sensationalist BS like this...

    Re: 1900% increase in the beer tax!

    It would be nice if the article researched what the tax is in other states. If the results are what is implied in this article, that Oregon producers will pay a lot more in taxes then producers in other states, then manufacturers will simply move out of state or fold. It doesn't sound like it's a "at the tap" tax so Budweiser and Miller will not be impacted, just Oregon brewers. It sounds like this is a really bad idea and I doubt it will pass.

    It would make more sense and more $$ if they taxed all of it, rather than trying to put their small businesses at a disadvantage.
