The bill aims to permanently reduce taxes and modernize regulations for brewers and other craft beverage makers. In 2016, the brewing industry brought in $350 million to the U.S. economy and helped bring jobs to about 2.23 million Americans. Senator Wyden is co-sponsoring the bill alongside Missouri Senator Roy Blunt.
Lawmakers are hoping this new law will boost the economy and level the playing field for future craft beer and winemakers.
