Title: Proposal to Allow for the Use of Molasses and Grain in Wine and to Address Sugar as a Fermentable in the Production of Wine and Beer 

In response to petitions from industry members, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau intends to propose amendments to its wine and beer regulations to remove the prohibition on the use of grain, cereal, malt, or molasses as ingredients in wine, and to address the use of sugar as a fermentable in the production of wine and beer and the implications for the classification of such products as wine or beer under the Internal Revenue Code.
