This article is part of the Center for Media & Democracy's spotlight on front groups and corporate spin.

No Drink Tax is a front group operated by the PR firm Berman & Co. Berman & Co. operates a network of dozens of front groups, attack-dog web sites, and alleged think tanks that work to counteract minimum wage campaigns, keep wages low for restaurant workers, and to block legislation on food safety, secondhand cigarette smoke, drunk driving, and more.

No Drink Tax describes itself as "a special project of the American Beverage Institute (ABI)," "an association of restaurants committed to the responsible serving of adult beverages" according to No Drink Tax's website.[1]

According to Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, No Drink Tax "opposes federal, state, and local attempts to increase taxes on alcohol."[2]
