Oregon lawmakers are considering hiking their state's taxes on beer by a whopping 1900%.
The proposed tax would increase taxes by $50
on each barrel of beer produced by state brewers. The Oregonian
says this isn't a new idea, though. Apparently a Democratic legislator named Ben Cannon
brings this tax idea up all the time.
