The LNP has moved to block the Palaszczuk Labor Government from increasing the annual fire levy on craft breweries by almost 900 per cent.
LNP Shadow Minister for Fire Lachlan Millar and Shadow Minister for Small Business Fiona Simpson said the fire levy increase could force craft breweries to close, costing local jobs and pushing up beer prices.
Micro-breweries in Brisbane and regional cities will see their fire charge skyrocket from $527.80 to $5224.20 a year.
"A 900 per cent increase is totally unacceptable for any business and can't be justified," Mr Millar said.
"Labor's beer tax must be stopped or some breweries will close and jobs will be lost.
"The LNP is asking the Palaszczuk Labor Government to give breweries a break and stop Labor's latest tax grab."
The LNP has moved a disallowance motion in Parliament aiming to stop Labor from increasing the fire levy on craft breweries.
Ms Simpson said Queensland's craft breweries were a great small business success story.
"Smashing breweries with a 900 per cent increase in their fire levy is bad for business and bad for jobs," Ms Simpson said.
"This is nothing more than a greedy Labor tax on beer.
"Labor should be encouraging small businesses to open, not smashing them with new or increased taxes.
"If Labor were serious about supporting small business they would scrap this beer tax."
Previously, craft breweries paid the level 3 fire levy charged to small-scale industrial premises, but the Palaszczuk Labor Government has now ordered them to pay the far higher level 7 levy.
