Brewers, and others concerned:

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.
