On Tuesday, March 22 members of Minnesota's Craft Brewer's Guild rallied against legislation with demands for change to the state's outdated liquor laws that prevent them from selling their own products.
With May -- which happens to be Mental Health Awareness month -- now here, participating breweries have all announced that their iterations of the Things We Don't Say IPA is not on tap and available to try.
The changes to the tax law passed in December by the federal government will have a direct impact on small brewers. Part of the change included the "Craft Beverage Modernization and Tax Reform Act". It cuts the federal excise tax in half from $7 a barrel to $3.50 a barrel on the first 60,000 barrels a year.
