Iowa liquor regulators have dropped a proposal to require Everclear to be registered like beer kegs, but they will require a warning on the bottles.

The Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Commission has been looking at Everclear and other potent alcohol products since a Drake University student nearly died from alcohol poisoning last November.

Administrator Lynn Walding says the board, which made the decision last week, concluded any benefit to be gained by registering bottles of Everclear isn't worth the burden of work.

Walding says the commission will proceed with warning notices on
the neck of Everclear bottles, but those details are still being worked out.AP-IA--Iowa-Liquor Limit,0133

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - State liquor regulators have dropped a
proposal to require Everclear to be registered like beer kegs, but
will require a warning on the bottles.
The Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Commission has been looking at
Everclear and other potent alcohol products since a Drake
University student nearly died from alcohol poisoning last
November.
Administrator Lynn Walding says the board, which made the
decision last week, concluded any benefit to be gained by
registering bottles of Everclear isn't worth the burden of work.

Walding says the commission will proceed with warning notices on
the neck of Everclear bottles, but those details are still being worked out.

Everclear is sold in Iowa as 151-proof, meaning it's about 75 percent alcohol.
