You can increase the tax on a lot of things in Wisconsin, but beer apparently isn't one of them.

Madison representative Terese Berceau says she has collected only three co-sponsors for her proposal to increase the tax on beer. She says the current tax of two cents a six-pack isn't much when you consider the beer tax hasn't been raised since 1969.

Despite the lack of support, Berceau says she plans to try and move her bill through the legislature.
