BA Petitions TTB for Further Formula Requirement Exemptions

Share Post

The Brewers Association (BA) has submitted its latest petition to the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) seeking exemption from formula requirements for specific ingredients used in the brewing of beer. Since 2006, BA has submitted four ingredient exemption petitions to TTB bringing the list of ingredients determined to be traditional, and therefore not subject to formula requirements, to eighty-eight. The BA’s 2021 petition and this latest petition, both of which are pending review and action, potentially add another fifteen ingredients to that exempt list.
