2012_brooklyn_brewery_beer_tax12.jpgBeer prices in New York are expected to rise by as much as $1 per pint in the coming weeks after the State Legislature eliminated a crucial tax incentive given to state breweries.

Combine this with the potential happy hour ban, and you can expect to spend more on beer than ever before. [DNA Info]
