Government shutdown impacts Springfield brewery’s beer production


Mother’s Brewing Company is one of many affected by the government shutdown. The Springfield brewery is still making beer. However, it impacts their new beers that don’t yet have labels approved.

The Federal Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau is in charge of approving the licenses and labels for any new beers. Employees of the bureau are not working, so breweries like Mother’s have to wait.

The Tax and Trade Bureau’s website is still accepting electronic payments, but a message on the site reads they will not be reviewing or approving any applications until the shutdown ends.
