  • On January 3, 2005, the Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) adopted a final rule requiring 51% of the alcoholic content in flavored malt beverages (FMB) to be the product of brewing. No more than 49% of the alcohol content can originate from flavors and other nonbeverage ingredients for beers and malt beverages. Affected industry members have one year to reformulate their FMB products.
