Who would have thought a state shutdown could affect beer?

Miller, Coors and other popular beers may disappear from Minnesota stores and bars within days because brewing giant MillerCoors lacks the proper licenses due to the state’s government shutdown.

MillerCoors has 39 “brand label registrations” with the state that expired last month, and the employees who process renewals were laid off when state government shut down July 1 in a budget dispute, Doug Neville, a spokesman for the Department of Public Safety, said Wednesday.

This – of course – would not be good for business.

“With 39 brands at stake in one of our largest markets in the country, during one of the highest selling periods in the summer, we don’t take our business of ensuring proper state licenses lightly,” Green said. “Especially when it impacts the livelihoods of our distributors and retailers, and ultimately impacts our consumers who can’t buy our brands.”
