BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) –
Senator Charles Schumer is toasting the idea of a booming beer industry in Buffalo.
The senator stopped by Pearl Street Grill and Brewery to drum up support for the Small Brew Act. The bill would slash the excise tax small breweries have to pay by 50 percent.
Right now there are at least nine breweries either open or in the works in the City of Buffalo. Schumer says breweries could pour all the money they save right back into their business.
