The craft beer revolution has hit a snag in the US, as the government has decided that beer is a form of tobacco.
Beer has long been a formaldehyde-based intoxicant, and the US has been fighting to protect it from the toxic chemicals in cigarette smoke.
But now the US government is deciding that the substance that makes beer great has something of a medical value, too.
And while beer fans in the United States might not be able to see the irony, there is one.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is now proposing to regulate beer and tobacco products.
It’s not a new proposal, and its coming out of a similar place.
The FDA has been pushing for a few years now to regulate the manufacture, distribution, sale and consumption of alcohol and tobacco, including beer.
But there is an ongoing push to regulate alcohol and the consumption of tobacco, and to do so in a way that doesn’t compromise public health.
The agency’s proposal, which has been circulating for a couple of years now, is based on an existing FDA regulation called the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB).
That’s the US Department of Treasury that’s supposed to regulate US-regulated alcohol and cigarette products.
That’s a bit like the US Treasury’s Department of Justice.
It regulates tobacco products, which is a bit more complicated.
But the idea is that the TTB is designed to apply to tobacco, so the US would have to regulate tobacco as well.
The proposal is in the draft version of the US Alcohol and Cigarette Tax and Tobacco Control Act, which would come into effect in 2021.
That could change at any moment.
What does the proposed law mean?
Beer is a tobacco product, the FDA proposes.
The TTB defines a tobacco smoke as a product that contains tobacco and a tobacco leaf.
So a beer glass contains no tobacco.
The proposed law would classify tobacco products in a similar way to beer, so that tobacco products would be subject to tobacco taxation in the same way that alcohol products are.
The proposal is an attempt to make beer tobacco products as tobacco-free as alcohol products.
But some experts think that would be too broad.
The current definition of tobacco as a “material” is quite broad, and could apply to a wide variety of products, including the beer glass.
“The goal here is not to outlaw alcohol, but to put it on a different footing,” said Richard Wiles, a professor at Cornell University.
He added that a number of products made from tobacco have been exempt from tobacco taxes in recent years, and that there’s a large potential for the TTD to come into play.
The problem with the TTT proposal is that it doesn’t define tobacco as anything other than tobacco.
It’s not clear how the TTP would apply to cigarettes.
The industry is trying to convince regulators that the proposed rules are a step in the right direction, but that hasn’t been enough.
There are a lot of legal problems with the proposal.
The first is that, in many states, beer is already regulated by the TSB, and some state governments have tried to make their own regulations to prevent the FDA from taking any further action.
That doesn’t make the proposal perfect, but it does make it a lot less likely that the FDA would take action, which could cause a lot more problems down the line.
In other words, there’s the potential for this to create a lot confusion.
So what does this mean for you?
Beer is already taxed in some states, and beer drinkers have fought hard to have it taxed at a lower rate.
That means that the industry isn’t going to go into panic mode.
But it could also create some new headaches for those who rely on beer to stay in their home state.
It also means that if you buy a lot, you could end up paying more in taxes.
I don’t know if it will make it easier for you to get beer, but I do know that the federal government is moving toward banning beer in some of the states that have decided to go that route.
