Beer Nutritional Labeling At Least 3 Years Away
Posted by Bob Skilnik on July 31, 2007
While Google and Yahoo Alerts are trumpheting that the Department of Treasury is considering a new rule that would require companies to put alcoholic content, serving sizes and nutritional information on all alcoholic drink containers, take a deep breath and regroup. After you cut through all the hyperbole, the fact remains that even if Treasury via the Alcohol, Tobacco, Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) decides to give this a “GO,” it will be at least 3 years before anything will happen.
Makes for great headlines, that’s all. In the meantime, why wait another 3 years for nutritional info on your favorite beer?
