As the Minnesota state government shutdown nears the two-week mark, residents may be facing another yet another inconvenience: no beer. MillerCoors is being force to pull its products from restaurants, bars, and stores across the state due to a brand licensing problem, according to the Associated Press.
Department of Public Safety spokesman Doug Neville said Wednesday that MillerCoors’ ”brand label registrations” with the state have expired. The employees who process renewals were laid off when state government shut down July 1 in a budget dispute.
While other brands are unaffected, this is surely going to be costly for local businesses who can no longer sell MillerCoors beers.
