Federal, state and local regulations governing draught beer should always be thoroughly investigated by the brewer prior to releasing product to the public. Below are some general guidelines to federal regulations however the reader is encouraged to consult the federal registry for complete information.
The keg itself is to be permanently labeled with the brewer’s name. The place of production must be permanently marked on the keg, bung, tap cover or on a label securely affixed to each keg. For breweries with multiple production facilities, the place of production can be part of a list of all locations as long as it is not given less emphasis than any of the others. However if more than one location is shown on the keg, the brewer has to indicate the actual place of production by printing, coding or other markings on the bung, tap cover or a separate label. The coding system must allow a government official to determine where the keg was produced. The code must have a street address if the brewery has more than one operation in the same city. The regional compliance director has to be notified before using a coding system.
Label approval is required if a label or tap cover is used. Labels or tap covers used must have Certificates of Label Approval (COLA). All alcoholic malt beverages must be marked, branded or labeled with the required information. No statement as to payment of internal revenue taxes may be shown.
Alcoholic malt beverages must be labeled for the following:
1. Brand Name.
2. Class and type designation.
3. Name and address of brewer (can be stamped or branded on container).
4. Country of origin if imported.
5. Name and address of importer (if applicable).
6. Name and address of the packer in the case of malt beverages packed for the holder of a permit or a retailer.
7. Net contents (stamped or branded on the container).
8. Alcohol content (when required by state law).
9. Health warning statement.
Remember these are GENERAL guidelines and you really need to check with the government. Remember a tap handle constitutes a label and must be approved. So does any kind of neck ring or other decorations. If you have more questions, e-mail me at Bob@majesticpackaging.com.
