    You are talking pennies to the consumer, yet for those start up brewers it can be of great benefit.

    Then why the hubbub over a soda tax?

    Economic policies have cost-benefits and cost-deficits; they also ought to be vetted before voted upon, to reduce the latter and consider before passage the consequences - intended and unintended. A process which requires sagacious thinking totally absent when the Congress votes on party line.

    The soda tax is a higher tax. The distillery tax is lowered-

    Small brewers will see their tax rate cut in half, from $7 to $3.50 per barrel for the first 60,000 barrels. Tax rates for liquor plunge even more, from $13.50 to $2.70 per gallon for the first 100,000 gallons produced or imported.
