CARDIN TO TOUR HEAVY SEAS BREWERY, BRINGING ‘MADE IN MARYLAND’ TOUR

 

TO BALTIMORE

 

TODAY/Friday, July 19 at 2:30PM, U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD), will continue his “Made in Maryland” tour at the Heavy Seas Brewery in Baltimore where he will tour the expanding facility and meet with local businesses and community leaders during a roundtable discussion. Senator Cardin also will discuss his “Small BREW Act” (S. 917, The Small Brewer Reinvestment and Expanding Workforce Act), which is bipartisan legislation designed to stimulate regional economies nationwide with a reduction in the excise tax on each barrel of beer brewed by small brewers. Maryland is home to 29 craft brewers, with at least 24 more in the planning stages. An economic impact study by Dr. John Friedman at Harvard University found that the bill would generate $183.1 million in economic activity in the first year and almost $1.04 billion over five years and would also create nearly 5,230 jobs in just the first year. 

 

“At such an important time for America’s economic recovery, ‘Made in Maryland’ is my way to highlight the diverse products being produced in our great state and adding to the growth of our economy.  I plan to listen and bring ideas back to Washington so the federal government can better assist these great companies as they strive to be the best and most innovative in their field,” Senator Cardin said.
