LABELING OF MALT BEVERAGES FOR SALE IN WASHINGTON STATE.
Brewers, and others
Purpose. The purpose of this Circular is to inform brewers that the
cut off date of May 1, 1962, established in Industry Circular No. 61-52
for the use of labels bearing statements of alcoholic content in the State
of Washington has been extended.
Background. Refer to Industry Circular No. 61-52.
Conclusion. We have been informed that some brewers have large
inventories of labels which were prepared for use in Washington prior
to the change in Washington law to eliminate the requirement that all
malt beverages be labeled to show the maximum alcoholic content.
In view of these circumstances and in order not to cause any undue
hardships on the brewers, present stocks of labels for malt beverages
bearing statements of alcoholic content in the manner previously required
under Washington law may be used on containers shipped into Washington
until December 31, 1962.
Inquiries. Correspondence in regard to this Industry Circular
should refer to its number and be addressed to the Director, Alcohol
and Tobacco Tax (CP:AT:B), Washington 25, D. C.
