Sales Tax Changes for Breweries

Beginning July 1, 2019, Pennsylvania brewers who serve beer for direct on-premises consumption must charge and remit Pennsylvania’s 6% sales tax on such “tap-room” purchases.

This measure, which was originally slated to take effect on January 1, 2019, has been, predictably, very unpopular with Pennsylvania breweries and micro-breweries.  It is also a change from previous Department of Revenue policy.   Stay tuned for further developments.
