Beer lovers and breweries impacted by government shutdown

Beer lovers and breweries impacted by government shutdown

"There's a lot of guys that are coming out with new beers literally every week so they're going to have to rely on some of their old staples and just keep producing those".

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Lakefront Brewery in Milwaukee can't release one of its new brews for the same reason (TTB label approval) as Atlas in D.C. The New York Times reports that Alementary Brewing in Hackensack, N.J., can't get federal approval to begin brewing in its new warehouse because the application is sitting on a desk in a government office.

That's because workers inside the federal bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms have been furloughed. Called Deux Decadence (a nod to two decades), the stout has been aging in bourbon barrels from Kentucky for a year.

"We can still roll out the beer in draft form", Katchever said.

On Friday, Senator Richard Blumenthal is expected to visit Thomas Hooker Brewery for a roundtable discussion to hear concerns about the current issue from brewers across the state.

"I still kind of feel worse for the people who actually work for the TTB that are considered non essential and all of a sudden they don't have jobs right now", said Snyder.

But Katchever can't bottle the more than 500 cases of beer until his label gets approved by the bureau. I think about all the spring releases that are going to be coming out soon.

Head Brewers like Snyder can still submit their labels to the TTB; there just aren't any employees there to review or approve them. But after almost three weeks of being shut down, the bureau is likely to have a huge backlog of applications waiting when the government reopens. "Well, a lot of them won't be coming out". "[It] doesn't matter what the size of the company is; when nobody's answering the phone, the work stops and it really puts the beer industry at a disadvantage", Purser said.

That's the agency that approves new beers and their labels before they hit the shelves and for local Lincoln breweries this unexpected hold-up is causing headaches.
