U.S. Sen. John Kerry says he wants to give the country’s 1,500 small beer makers a tax break.

Kerry introduced a bill to the Senate on Wednesday that would reduce the excise tax for small breweries from $7 to $3.50 per barrel for the first 60,000 barrels of beer produced each year.

For every additional barrel up to 2 million, the bill would lower the excise tax from $18 to $16.
