Oklahoma distributors and brewers provide jobs, wages and taxes that support our state and local governments. These businesses are responsible corporate citizens that have invested in Oklahoma for more than 63 years.
Here is a brief snapshot of the economic impact of the Oklahoma beer industry:
- Supports 8,000 jobs
- Provides $303 million in wages
- Contributes $58 million in taxes
The beer industry also affects and supports other industries, including agriculture, retail, construction, manufacturing and tourism throughout our state. With standardization in place, the potential economic impact of Oklahoma distributors and brewers would benefit a variety of businesses and industries, creating a stronger and more diverse economy for all Oklahomans.
The Oklahoma beer industry is on the cusp of incredible growth if Oklahoma can truly standardize its beer laws and give businesses the freedom to grow and respond to consumer demand.
