Governor Shumlin names winners downtown tax credits, Trout River Brewing awarded $62,500

State tax credits will support tenant improvements to a former machine tool factory space in downtown Springfield.    


  1. Great! More tax dollars to support incompetent businesses. If they work it right the tax payers will pay for the whole pipe dream of a few wantabe brewers.

    1. I'm inclined to agree. The brewery is a novelty fad having accumulated huge debt on the shoulders of tax payers. It adds nothing to the local work force and wouldn't have got a second look for financing if it was an automotive or manufacturing enterprise. Beyond that, my first taste their efforts on tap at the Hole this weekend was flat. There's far too many better beers for less money to be had.
