It has been a long time coming for the company. The board banned the labels in March, citing that they found them objectionable before agreeing to reconsider in April.
Even Fat Bastard Wine, whose labels were already approved in the state, chimed in with support saying, “Congratulations & welcome to the party!”
In addition to a federal layer (the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau or “TTB”) of approval for each beer label to be sold across state lines, each state has its own approval process as well for both in-state and out-of-state labels.
Dirty Bastard is a Scotch Ale that is available year-round in six-packs. Backwoods Bastard is the Bourbon Barrel-aged version of Dirty Bastard, a limited release in four-packs in November.
