Craft Breweries Feeling Impact of Government Shutdown

Posted:

MILTON, Del.- Showing off the imagination of craft brewers on Delmarva is on hold for now, with the federal government in a partial shutdown.

Breweries must submit their label designs for approval with the federal Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Trade Bureau, which is shut down due to the stalemate in Washington. This puts a stranglehold on breweries looking to bring new beers to the market.

"Craft brewing is such a fast-moving industry," said Rich Gustafson of 16 Mile in Georgetown. "People always want the newest and latest."

Gustafson said his brewery isn't feeling any negative effects due to the shutdown yet, however Dogfish Head in Milton has at least one seasonal beer on hold, waiting for federal label approval.

Any beers with labels already approved by the federal government are still allowed to be manufactured and sold across the United States.
