Transferring fermented wort from brewery

Recommended Posts

How does TTB regulate the transfer of fermented wort/beer from a brewery to a distillery? I understand winery to DSP doesn't require a transfer in bond approval- all that's necessary is keeping the BOL in records. Is this the same for brewery to DSP? Thanks!

Wine if at a bonded winery, it is transferred in bond, and there is an entry for that transfer in the monthly report and relevant transfer form. Beer is not bonded, and there is no place to enter the transfer as alcohol in the monthly report. Instead, it is treated as a raw material, for distillation, and reported in part VI of the production report. In category Other Materials, list it as "beer (from malt)" or include in the parenthesis whatever the mashbill is. Report it in gallons. Make sure the brewery invoices you for the product in gallons as well (the invoice is the primary record of the transfer, you should keep the BoL too, but it is the invoice that must be kept). The brewery will use the same information to be able to avoid paying excise tax on the beer sold to you. You may have state as well as federal paperwork required. Make sure the invoice indicates the estimated alcohol level.
