MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- State brewers are behind legislation that would create a Wisconsin Beer Commission to market and promote their product.

Rep. Gary Tauchen has offered a bill that would set up a commission with four members representing small brewers or brewpubs, one member for large brewers, one for wholesalers and a chairperson.

WISC-TV reports Tauchen says he wants to make Wisconsin the "Napa Valley of craft brewing."

The Brewers Association says Wisconsin ranks 11th in the nation for the number of breweries per capita.
