Thought this was interesting. Taxes on cheap beer. No taxes on microbrews. I agree with Gregoire about not raising sales tax, I work in Construction and she has been on our side since the beginning as far as getting us back to work.

Interesting story. I really like the angle on no taxing the microbrews.

They attempted a really large raise on beer tax here in Oregon this past session, and thank goodness it's failed. Would have drove many many microbreweries out of business.

That's part of our Bread and Butter here in Portland.
