Big Rock the big winner as Alberta adjusts tax structure for craft breweries

Big Rock the big winner as Alberta adjusts tax structure for craft breweries The Alberta government will adjust its beer tax policy to benefit larger brewers, a move that comes months after Calgary-based Big Rock Brewery blamed the existing tax structure for its recent financial losses and layoffs. As of Sept. 13, Alberta will extend the reduced beer markup that is currently charged to small craft brewers producing less than 50,000 hectolitres to include producers who brew up to 400,000 hectolitres. The reduced rate will be offered on a sliding scale — meaning depending on its size, a brewery could pay anywhere between 10 to 80 cents per litre. After a brewery exceeds the 400,000 hectolitre mark, a flat markup rate of $1.

Devin Marshall Cunningham, 33, of Edmonton, Alta., is facing 10 charges, including possession for the purpose of trafficking and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.

Andrew David Paddley, 31, also of Edmonton, is facing 11 charges, including carrying a concealed firearm possession for the purpose of trafficking.

Both Cunningham and Paddley made their first appearances in North Battleford Provincial Court Friday morning.

Maidstone is located about 57 kilometres east of Lloydminster.
