A new report published by identifies the states with the best and worst beer tax laws to help illuminate national beer price trends and discrepancies. According to the group, the best states to find cheap beer taxes (on off-premise purchase) include: Wyoming (2 cents), Wisconsin (6 cents), Missouri (6 cents), Oregon (8 cents), Colorado (8 cents), Pennsylvania (8 cents), and Kentucky (8 cents). The excise tax is based on a gallon of suds.

By contrast, the highest beer taxes can be found in: Alaska ($1.07), Alabama ($1.05), Georgia ($1.01) and South Carolina (77 cents). People searching for great beer deals in these states may, in many cases, be better off trucking just over the state border and stocking up for the next party! Most states reasonably fall somewhere in the middle of these two polarities, with states in the Rust Belt and Mid-West in the teens, and Southern states in the twenties, thirties and forties.

“It’s no surprise that many of the same places with the highest beer taxes tend to be the places with the lowest beer consumption,” explains Mark Davidson, co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of He adds, “Personally, SaveOnBrew feels that anything over a dollar is just egregious, but that’s state’s rights for you!”

While Davidson and crew may not be able to control the price of beer tax, they can certainly point beer drinkers in the right direction for finding the best advertised beer prices.

"If a beer deal is advertised electronically, rest assured we either have it or are about to add it.
