In recent years, handmade beer made in small breweries has been created.
The hand-made brewing industry today holds half the price and catches customers.
The beer hand industry insists on a revision of the tax system.[리포트]
Already before setting the sun, customers were in beer shops.[“행복한 주말을 위하여!”]
This is a handmade beer that is held in more than 30 breweries and pubs all over the world.[장은주/경기도 고양시 : “조금만 가격만 내리면 많은 사람들이 먹을 거 같으니까 오늘같은 이벤트를 많이 해줬으면 좋겠어요.”]
There are a number of handmade beers on the market, but only 0.5% of the market.
This is due to relatively high prices.
The import of low-priced beer, sold in four cans with a million won, rose almost four times in five years, and this year exceeded 20% of the market.
Hand-made beer is believed to be due to detergents.
The current beer tax is advantageous for cheap imported beer because it is a final tax depending on the cost.
Therefore, it is argued that the quantity of beer should be changed to the amount of tax which is charged on the basis of the quantity of beer.
The government is also considering introducing a quantitative tax to protect the domestic beer industry, but is concerned that the price of beer at low prices may increase.[김동연/경제부총리/지난달 19일 : “(종량세 하면) 생맥주같은 경우에는 60%정도 세금이 올라갑니다. 맥주 뿐만 아니라 전체 주류에 대한 종량세를 전반적으로 검토할 계획입니다.”]
With regard to production cuts and taxes, beer producers turn to factories abroad and therefore a reasonable system needs to be created.
