这些小酿酒商也为这个国家吸引了游客。都柏林的啤酒节和西科克的紫红色品牌就是其中的一些例子。紫红色品牌是西软木塞领导者合作社的企业，旨在吸引全球各地的游客来品尝美食。这有利于爱尔兰经济的发展，因为爱尔兰的食品和饮料是高价值的产品(Mulcahy, 2012, p. 7)，因此爱尔兰的小县城吸引了来自世界各地的食品和饮料爱好者，去旅游，体验正宗的美食和饮料，使得旅游业蓬勃发展。旅游业的增长为若干相互联系的部门的增长开辟了道路，如旅馆、运输和其他土著产品和服务。爱尔兰政府承认小型啤酒厂对该国经济的贡献。因此，为了进一步促进他们的增长，政府提出了退税这些啤酒厂。在2015年的预算中，政府表现出宽容的态度，延长了适用消费税减免的资格限制。
These microbrewers also attract tourism for the country. The beer festivals at Dublin and the Fuchsia Brand in West Cork are some of the examples. Fuchsia Brand is an enterprise of the West Cork Leader Co-operative Society to attract tourist across the globe for a gastronomic experience. This helps Ireland economy, where food and drink are high value products (Mulcahy, 2012, p. 7). Therefore the small counties of Ireland attract the food and drink enthusiasts from across the globe, to travel and experience the authentic cuisines and drinks, making tourism sector flourish. Growth in tourism opens avenues for the growth of several interlinked sectors like hotel, transportation and other indigenous products and services.The government of Ireland acknowledges the contribution of microbreweries to the country’s economy. Therefore to further promote their growth the government has come up with tax rebates for these breweries. In the budget 2015, government showed leniency by extending qualifying limit to avail excise duty relief.
The special relief on Alcohol Products Tax is reduced by 50% on beers produced in microbreweries with the annul produce of 20,000 hectolitres. In 2015 this rebate was extended to e applicable to microbrewers with annual production of 30,000 hectolitres. In the budget 2016 Michael Noonan, Finance Minister of Ireland announced that the special relief by reducing the standard rate of Alcohol Products Tax by 50% on beer produced in microbreweries will now be available upfront as well as through a rebate. These moves of the government will help the microbreweries with their cash position and cash flow.These provisions are a welcome move by the government to boast the micro-brewing industry. Rebate in excise would make these breweries cash rich and thereby help them further improve and expand their business. By increasing the eligibility limit for rebate the government has tried to reach to a wider number of microbrewers and also encourage the ones already enjoying rebate to increase production. Since these rebate, the number of breweries planning for expansion their capacity expansion have increased.
