TTB Updates Ruling...well kind of

Bad news for gluten-removed beers: Omission (Pale Ale, Lager and IPA), Estrella (Damm Daura), Two Brothers (Prairie Path Ale) and Bruneheut (Biere Blonde and Biere Ambree). The TTB (US Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau) has updated their ruling on the labeling of gluten-removed beers. Gluten-removed beers still cannot be called gluten-free. The TTB may revise this policy after the FDA issues a final rule or other guidance with respect to fermented and hydrolyzed products.
