16 Mile Brewery Just Broke the TTB with Flavored Amber Sun Beers.

[UPDATE: The list was updated on 10/4 as beers continue to pour out of the TTB. Not only are keg labels being approved for Amber Sun, but now labels for Blues Golden Ale mixed with various flavors are also being approved. The Updated list is below.]

The TTB (Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau) is the government agency that over sees much of what goes on in the world of beer, wine, mead and cider. Among their duties is (where required) the approval of labeling that appears on these products.

The TTB releases approved labels on their website’s database. This is how sites like mine and My Beer Buzz get the label information we do before the beer hits the shelves or cooler.

For me, it’s pretty simple. Delaware is a quite state compared to some and a routine check now and then usually only unveils a label or two, most of which are keg labels that I don’t normally share because there’s normally nothing interesting on the label beyond the name of the beer.

So I was shocked this morning when I checked the database and found that the tally of new labels approved for Delaware within the last month now stood at 54, when a check a couple of days ago showed it solidly in the low 20s.  What happened?

Well, 16 Mile happened. And they happened big time.

Apparently the brewery will be dosing their Amber Sun ale with – well almost everything under the sun. All the beers at this point appear to be keg only as shown by the example label below and as the list of approved labels appeared in almost perfect alphabetical order (not how the TTB presents them in the database) and ends with the letter C, I’m left wondering if there’s more to come.

What’s this all about? No idea, but color me intrigued.
