BC lowering taxes for "micros"

With the new policy, smaller breweries will pay increased taxes on an incremental scale that rises every 5,000 hectolitres sold above 160,000 hectolitres, he said.

The change will help seven B.C. craft breweries to expand and create local jobs, Coleman said.


I'm not sure what 7 'craft' breweries he's talking about... 160k hL is a heck of a lot.

Shenanigans aside, I think its logical that taxes would go up by less than 240,000 hectolitre increments.
