Fix the Beer TaxFor those who missed the “Fix the Beer Tax” kickoff Wednesday in Nashville, here’s some video below from the event.

There were speeches from Linus Hall from Yazoo Brewing Company and the Tennessee Craft Brewers Guild; Rich Foge of the Tennessee Malt Beverage Association; and legislative sponsors State Rep. Cameron Sexton (R-Crossville) and State Sen. Brian Kelsey (R-Germantown). There are also some testimonials at the end.

The “Beer Tax Reform Act of 2013″ seeks to reform the 17% beer wholesale tax in Tennessee, which contributes to the state having the highest beer taxes in the nation. (Read FuzzyBrew’s earlier post here.)
