Map of Beer Taxes by State

"Sammy" sends in this instructive map from The Tax Foundation illustrating state-by-state variation in beer excise taxes levied:


As a Floridian, I can confirm that excise taxes are just as high for other alcoholic beverages. Maybe I should consider a move to Wyoming.

UPDATE: Somewhat related, here's a fascinating heat map of gasoline prices, broken down by county, showing that most of the variation is attributable to state taxes, even more so than differences in regional blending requirements.
