|Description||"The glass is looking more than half full for beer lovers in Pennsylvania, home of America’s oldest brewery. |
That’s because last week, Rep. Jim Gerlach from the 6th district proposed beer friendly legislation appropriately titled the BREW Act. The Small Brewer Reinvestment and Expanding Workforce (BREW) Act would offer a tax cut to PA brewers that produce less than 6 million barrels of beer a year.
