Beer Taxes Map

Marin Institute recently launched the Neglected and Outdated Beer Taxes Map, an interactive tool to help policymakers balance state budgets. The map reveals states suffering the most from Big Beer’s influence: states with beer taxes stuck at absurdly low rates, with some set as long ago as the 1930s. It particularly highlights twelve states with the lowest beer tax rates in the nation–half of which have not raised their beer tax in 50 years or more.
