The law which took effect July 1 does not require alcoholic content labeling for beverages below 5.7% by volume. In what's called a simplification of California's labeling laws malt beverages can now be called "beer" regardless of whether the beverage contains more than 5.7% alcohol by volume; they were previously measured in alcohol by weight. The same latitude has been extended to other types of brews like ales or stouts.
