Local brewers impacted by federal government shutdown

Ago.

The nation's craft beer taps are being squeezed by the government shutdown.

Brewers across the country have put new releases on hold ... and stopped shipments as the shutdown is in its 27-th day.

The partial shutdown halted operations at the federal agency that regulates alcohol production and distribution.

That means government employees can't issue the permits needed for the beer to flow.

Wisconsin senator tammy baldwin says she's hearing from brewers about the impact.

"there are many examples in wisconsin where breweries are losing money because of delays and frankly they haven't gotten any response from the government."

The shutdown impacts primarily craft breweries.

The biggest brewers are largely unaffected because they already have government approval for their top national brands.

The founder of pearl street brewery in la crosse says the impact is being felt locally as well.

"it's cutting into their ability to operate their brewery approiately and successfully and therefore, this pretty much needs to change."

It's too early to quantify the overall economic effect on breweries ... according to the wisconsin brewers guild.

A representative for the guild says smaller brewers are likely to suffer most.
