Anatomy of a Malt Beverage Label Tool is Here!

August 7, 2023│Office of Communications



If you’re new to the beer industry, or would like more information about TTB label requirements, check out our interactive Anatomy of a Malt Beverage Label tool. (Generally, “malt beverage” is the Federal Alcohol Administration Act term for beverages containing both malted barley and hops.)

Move your mouse over the label and click on any element to see TTB rules for that information, plus view Certificate of Label Approval (COLA) requirements and helpful tips for creating a compliant label.

You can access additional in-depth malt beverage labeling information on the Malt Beverage Labeling home page, as well as view the handy Mandatory Information Checklist.

These guidance pages are designed to help you move through the TTB label approval process with fewer bumps and delays.
