News: Cass Stealing Water for 37 YearsTuesday, January 20, 2015
OB Brewery can't seem to get a break. In 2014 there was a rumor that the beer tastes like bleach. ( which was unfounded and was believed to have been started by a rival.
Now they are in trouble again for stealing water from the North Han river for 37 years. They reportedly owe 270억 or 270,000 usd in back fees. OB claimed that they were not liable for the fees since they built a dam for their own usage. However, it was later revealed they did not pay for the dam as claimed.
The controversy has upset individual taxpayers since their tax fees have been raised this year while big companies can get away with avoiding taxes for so long.
