Higher state tax on beer - San Jose Mercury News:
"SACRAMENTO - Joe Six-pack will have to pay a lot more to get his buzz on if Assemblyman Jim Beall has his way.D'oh!
The San Jose Democrat on Thursday proposed raising the beer tax by $1.80 per six-pack, or 30 cents per can or bottle. The current tax is 2 cents per can. That's an increase of about 1,500 percent."
I just read that Gordon Biersch brews beer for Costco and Trader Joe's under contract.
I'll have to head over to my local Trader Joe's and check the label to see if it says San Jose.
