Brewers, and others concerned:

In keeping with our continuing efforts to make brewery inspections as practical and meaningful as possible, we have reappraised our inspection techniques and tested new ideas by means of a pilot inspection program conducted at a few selected breweries in each region. During these pilot inspections a written description of operations, records, and internal controls, covering each major segment of the particular brewer's activities, was employed. This written description, which we have called the "plant profile", was found to be very helpful to both us and to the brewers concerned. Accordingly, we plan to extend the use of plant profiles to all brewery inspections.

If your brewery did not participate in the pilot inspection program, a representative of the Assistant Regional Commissioner's office may soon contact you concerning the preparation of a profile for your brewery. When he does, we will appreciate your giving him assistance and cooperation in the preparation of the document. When the profile has been completed, a copy will be made available to you. We think you will find it both interesting and helpful.

Inquiries concerning this circular should refer to its number and be addressed to your Assistant Regional Commissioner, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax.
