More Pennies for Pints in Pennsylvania
PENNSYLVANIA -- Your next pint of porter could cost a few pennies more in Pennsylvania. It all comes down to taxes and a craft beer boom. The State Department of Revenue told craft brewers in July they must collect sales tax on their drinks. That means taprooms at craft breweries are going to have to charge six cents more for every dollar. So that's an extra 30 cents tacked onto a five-dollar pint.
