Final Rule: Flavored Malt Beverages
After extensive public comment, TTB amends the regulations to define standards for flavored malt beverages. For purposes of production, labeling, advertising and taxation, such product may contain non-potable flavoring contributing not more than forty-nine (49%) percent of the overall alcoholic content of the finished beverage. If the alcoholic content of the finished beverage exceeds six (6%) percent alcohol by volume, then not more than one and one-half (1.5%) percent may come from the addition of nonbeverage flavoring.
