Baltimore city residents will be paying a 9-percent tax on the bottle for alcoholic beverages ("Give us a break from City Hall's fee fever," June 13). That means a 30-pack of beer will cost $1.69 more than in Baltimore County after the distributor takes 5 cents a case! Thank you, mayor and City Council!
