Applications to Operate a TTB-Regulated Business

Brewery-BrewPub Packet

This packet contains information for businesses wishing to produce malt beverages, operate a brewpub or micro brewery or conduct an alternating proprietorship with another brewery. Saké producers must also complete this packet.

Description: IMPORTANT

As of January 1, 2017, if you are the proprietor of a brewery, distilled spirits plant, or winery owing not more than $50,000 in excise taxes in the previous year, and you expect to owe not more than $50,000 in excise taxes in the current year on beer, distilled spirits, or wine, you may no longer be required to hold a bond.

In addition, if you owed not more than $1,000 in excise taxes the previous year and expect to owe not more than $1,000 in the current year, you will be eligible to file your excise taxes annually, rather than semi-monthly or quarterly.

The information in this tutorial may not reflect these changes. TTB will update it as soon as possible. In the meantime, please see our Bond and Filing Changes homepage for more details.
