The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) has published Procedure 2023-1 Transfer of Beer Between Breweries Not of the Same Ownership to provide brewers with guidance regarding the transfer of beer, without payment of tax, from one brewery to another brewery not of the same ownership. Procedure 2023-1 reissues the guidance contained in Procedure 2018-1, which expired, with some minor updates and also reissues guidance regarding the effect of transfers of beer between breweries not of the same ownership on the applicability of the reduced beer excise tax rates included in the Craft Beverage Modernization Act.
