Episode 30: Frozen beers are not all that great…

In this episode of The Craft Beercast, we talk about the TTB’s reclassification of some ingredients as “traditional”, effectively loosening the regulation on brewer’s ingredients and processes. This is significantly reducing the time it takes breweries to go through the formula approval process for their beers.

Bureaucratic Relief: New “Traditional” Ingredients & Processes Don’t Require Formula Approval

On June 5, 2014, TTB issued a fairly significant ruling, Ingredients and Processes Used in the Production of Beer Not Subject to Formula Requirements.  The ruling clearly spells out which Exempt Ingredients and Processes are now deemed “traditional” and, therefore, do not require a TTB formula approval.

Free beer for life? Sounds good to us…

Would You Pay $1,000 Once to Get Free Beer for Life?

A brewpub and a coffee shop in Minnesota’s Twin Cities have used this one-time payment method to save their businesses. And there’s no reason to think the model can’t spread.

We discuss all that and lots more in addition to our normal Buy-No-Buy and I’d Tap That segments.
