As an alternative, why not consider taxing beer imported into Or from other states & countries at the proposed rates and raise Or beers at a more reasonable rate? That would encourage Or beer drinkers to switch to Oregon-brewed beers; the state would profit on taxes on non-Or beers and the homegrown industry would be strengthened.
A point regarding the "$300 million it would raise to prevention and treatment of substance abuse"; is there any data that suggests that alcoholics seeking treatment are heavy miocrobrew drinkers? Why should a small segment of the industry subsidize treatment when the big corporates that produce the cheaper beverages be left off the hook?
