Not only the beer industry the boat building industry uses tons upon tons of aluminum plate from half inch thick to 1 inch thick by 20 ft. in length to 10 ft. wide.  This tariff will kill the industry.

From your reference The Beer Institute says:

 

“According to third-party analyses, this 10% tariff will create a new $347.7 million tax on America’s beverage industry, including brewers and beer importers, and result in the loss of 20,291 American jobs."

 

I think that we should have a look at the "third-party analyses" (not provided by the BI) before getting our panties in a wad over the tariff. Other sources state that the net effect of the tariff on beer production amounts to a fraction of a cent per can, and no significant effect on jobs (are we going to drink less beer?).

 

P.S. I buy bottles. Tastes better Smiley Wink

 Jim McGreevy, Beer Institute President and CEO, released the following statement on the Department of Commerce’s recommendations contained in the Section 232 National Security Investigation of Imports of Aluminum report: “It is disheartening that Secretary Ross did not recommend to President Trump excluding primary aluminum and cansheet from tariffs and other import restrictions in the Department of Commerce’s 232 report.

Trump requesting that he refrain from imposing tariffs or import restrictions on cansheet, primary aluminum, and scrap.
