Excise, Duty & Revenue for Microbreweries

Please visit the Revenue Comissioners website for details of rebates available on duty for microbreweries. A relief from Alcohol Products Tax (APT) is available for beer produced in qualifying microbreweries. To qualify for relief, breweries must produce less than 50,000Hl per annum and satisfy other criteria regarding independence from other brewery operations to then avail of a 50% reduction on duty.

This reduction in duty allows a welcome  (albeit slight) equalisation between small breweries and large multi-national operations.
