Who Should Submit Their Beer Product Name(s) Utilizing the ABC-415

Any foreign beer manufacturer who is not licensed by the Department whose brand(s) of beer are sold in California.

A foreign beer manufacturer who does not sell and ship beer to a licensed California importer is not required to hold a certificate, permit or license issued by the Department. Although such beer manufacturers are not required to hold a license in California, they must comply with brand registration requirements as outlined in Section 25200 of the Business and Professions Code.

The Department’s online beer price posting system requires manufacturers of beer to input their beer product name(s) so that licensees can post prices for those products. Non-licensed beer manufacturers will submit the ABC-415 for the Department to input their beer products into the online beer price posting system.

How to Submit Beer Product Names

Submit a completed Beer Product Name Submission and Brand Registration for Non-Licensees (form ABC-415) via email to pps@abc.ca.gov. If you are unable to submit form ABC-415 via email, you can fax it to (916) 928-9625 or mail it to: ABC, Attn: Price Posting, 3927 Lennane Dr., Suite 100, Sacramento, CA 95834.

Instructions for Completing Form ABC-415

Item 7 – Enter the California ABC license number of the person for whom the beer is brewed, if applicable.
