Government Shutdown Halts New Beer Approval

A bureau of the U.S. Government known as the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (or “TTB”) is required to approval all new beer recipes and labels before the product can be shipped to another state.  So, any brewery that’s sitting on a great new beer can’t ship it out of state without TTB approval, which they can’t get until our government gets its act together and ends the shutdown.
