Temporary alcoholic content regs take effect.

Brewers may list alcohol content on labels of malt beverages under temporary regulations that took effect on April 19, 1993.

Under these regulations, brewers have the option to show or not show alcohol content on malt beverage labels. The BATF noted that the temporary regulations pertain just to labels, and that Federal law bars references to alcohol content in advertisements.

The new regulations are in response to a 1992 U.S. district court ruling that allows brewers and importers to list alcohol content on malt beverage labels. The decision came in a suit brought against federal regulators by the Adolph Coors Brewing Co.

The BATF said that permanent regulations might not be necessary, depending on the outcome of litigation in progress.
