Beer, wine, cider and spirits are an essential part of Oregon’s economy and identity.
Oregon’s breweries, wineries, cideries, distilleries, restaurants, bars and hospitality sector are facing major challenges. Between inflation on the cost of ingredients, supply chain issues with equipment, employee shortages, natural disasters and a two-year pandemic, these local businesses need the support of lawmakers and the public to survive. The last thing any local business needs are tax increases. Tax increases only make it harder to invest in rehiring, new equipment and expansion, and will result in higher prices for consumers. Oregon’s breweries, wineries, cideries, distilleries, restaurants and bars need the support of our elected officials through certainty and stability in the tax code. Join the Oregon Beverage Alliance and tell lawmakers: Don’t Tax My Drink!
