The beer industry is one of the jewels of America’s manufacturing sector, supporting more than 2.1 million jobs, 559,545 of which come from the craft industry. Breweries operate in every state and nearly every congressional district in the country. Congress and President Trump have recognized brewers’ economic benefits, and in 2017, they provided two years of federal excise tax relief to every American brewer and beer importer. These tax savings have provided more than $100 million in savings for brewers to reinvest, which has contributed hundreds of millions of dollars of economic investment into communities across the country.
