Beer Prices May Rise With Trump’s Aluminum Tarriff | Fortune

Beer producers warn that it could result in a loss of jobs and higher beer prices.

President Donald Trump’s plan to impose a 10% tariff on aluminum may end up hurting one American industry in particular: beer.

Beverage makers Molson Coors Brewing and Heineken sent a letter to Trump last month about the potential tariff, noting that it will likely cause beer and other drink producers an extra $256 million annually because of higher costs for their aluminum cans.

Those additional costs are likely to passed down to consumers through price hikes.
