The U.S. FDA issues final guidance in assisting manufacturers in the labeling of bottled or otherwise packaged beers. Certain beers that do not meet the definition of “malt beverages” are not subject to the labeling provisions of the Federal Alcohol Administration Act. This refers to beers that are not made from both malted barley and hops but are instead made from substitutes for malted barley (such as sorghum, rice, or wheat) or are made without hops. These particular beers are subject to the food labeling provisions of FDA laws and regulations.
