This week, Colton and Brian sat down with Mark Shilling, founder and managing principal at Shilling/Crafted. They discuss the FET reduction, TTB’s proposed changes, and Mark puts the podcast on blast, which is probably long overdue. Enjoy!


Just to really hammer this point home,  the Craft Beverage Modernization Act reduces excise tax for distillers from $13.50 to $2.70 per gallon for the first 100,000 proof gallons removed from bond per year, and it sunsets at THE END OF THE YEAR. Mark really said it best: no one can afford not to have this benefit, so get involved, invite your senators out, and attend the Public Policy Conference in DC in July of this year.
