    Green Bay Gazette: Baldwin bill would aid craft brewers

    Brad Stillmank mixed his first batch of beer at his new Henry Street brewery one year ago.

    His company, Stillmank Brewing, had contracted with Milwaukee Brewing Co. to make its beer until Aug. 10, 2014. Under the contract, the company made about 300 barrels each year. In the last 12 months, the Green Bay brewery produced 1,000.

    Now, a bill co-sponsored by U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., aims to help small craft brewers like Stillmank take the next step by easing regulations and cutting in half federal excise taxes on breweries’ first 60,000 barrels of beer.
