What is going on:
Miller/Coors, and other large beer companies are attempting to insert language into the state budget bill that severely threatens the ability of small, local breweries to thrive in Wisconsin. This corporate giveaway will eliminate jobs, reduce competition, and threaten the future of one of our state’s most cherished industries.
Why is this happening?
Large beer companies like Miller/Coors want to eliminate the growing competition their products face from locally owned and produced craft beers. Many large wholesalers will also benefit from a provision that will keep potential rivals out of the market.
