Nothing says Wednesday fun like taxes. Luckily, the Beer Institute knows both fun and taxes. Perhaps we’re generalizing here, but the trade association does represent the whole of the $253 billion American beer industry. The Beer Institute recently published an unofficial estimate of domestic tax paid shipments by beer brewers for September 2017: The September 2017 domestic tax paid estimate is 14,426,000 barrels. September 2016 removals were 15,175,000 barrels, for a decrease of 4.9 percent. Please note that the estimates reflect revised estimates released by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB).
