Yes coffee, chocolate, tea and guarana. There’s one SF brewer who does pretty much every methylated xanthine.

There are a number of spirits that contain coffee and chocolate extracts. I wonder if they got FDA letters too?

Ah, I see that they mention that in the article. If they really pursue this, it would decimate the ratebeer top 50. I’m guessing that it doesn’t come to that, but still a concern nonetheless.
