Craft Brewers Respond to Record-Breaking Tax Increase


The CCBA, in partnership with the Coalition of Canadian Independent Craft Brewers, have recently recommended in February that the federal government introduce a progressive, revenue-neutral, federal excise rate schedule for beer to promote growth for Canada’s independent craft breweries. This new schedule would introduce lower rates for those at the lowest volume tiers to help breweries become profitable, and extend rates for a longer period of time before the maximum tax is reached.
