WASHINGTON (AP) - Fanciers of imported beers shouldn't expect any bargains if
U.S. duties are cut under a tentative trade deal unveiled at the Tokyo economic summit.
The U.S. tariff on imported beer amounts to only 13.5 cents a case, so its elimination
as part of the trade package won't be a boon for beer drinkers, says Phil Katz of
the beer institute, a Washington-based trade group.
