Kegs or barrels sold in Minnesota must have the contents identified by paper stickers or stencils affixed on the same surface as the brewer's identification stating "3.2 beer" or similar words that are appropriate to the content, or as an alternative the alcoholic contents of kegs or barrels may be identified with distinctive symbols that have been submitted to and approved by the commissioner.
Nonreturnable and sealed cases of bottles or cans must have imprinted in ink on the top or one side of the case "3.2 beer" or similar words that are appropriate to the content, or identified by the use of distinctive symbols that have been submitted to and approved by the commissioner. This subpart applies to the shipping case but does not apply to smaller cartons that may be contained in the case. Each brewer and importer shall notify the commissioner whether identification will appear on the top or side of the case.
An unsealed returnable case of bottles needs no external marking to identify alcoholic content, if opening the case without breaking furnishes a direct view of bottles that identify the alcoholic content pursuant to this part.
A product not labeled in accordance with this part is subject to confiscation by the commissioner.
