Government Shutdown Impacts Craft Breweries

Government Shutdown Impacts Craft Breweries

We're going to take the next couple of minutes to talk about one of them - the craft beer industry.

That means People's won't be coming out with any new beers until the government re-opens.

- No tax refunds, no Smithsonian museums, no trash pickups in national parks-and now no new craft beer? That breaks down to about 3,000 applications coming in every week.

Both breweries say they anticipate at least a 45 day wait for label approval even after the government re-opens, as the agency becomes even more backlogged.

All labels have to be approved by the federal government.

PAUL GATZA: Any products that need those government approvals are just kind of frozen on hold. "I think about all the spring releases that are going to be coming out soon".

That's bad news for craft beer brewers.

"It's that first step and if they don't have that they can't move forward", Bailey said. Curt Cameron, the owner of the Thomas Hooker Brewery in Bloomfield and the former president of the Connecticut Brewers Guild said, "If I have beer ready to go to market and I'm ready to print labels I can't do that right now because I can't get that label approved".

Industry leaders say this backlog of applications is also a concern for large beermakers in the U.S.

That's because a crucial seal of approval in the production process of new beers can not happen right now. all thanks to the government shutdown. Otherwise, the beer might just sit in the tanks.
