    Shutdown forces MillerCoors to pull beer from shelves

    Shutdown forces MillerCoors to pull beer from shelves | StarTribune.com

    Miller Time in Minnesota is over -- until lawmakers reach a budget deal.

    The state's government shutdown, now in its 13th day, will soon force MillerCoors to pull its beer from Minnesota liquor stores, bars and restaurants. A state official says the law requires the company to stop selling products like Coors Light, Miller Lite and Blue Moon imminently because their brand licenses expired.

    The run to the line just got a little longer.
    I may be wrong.

    Where I live, there're many dry counties. And, the run to the line is such a ritual in those counties that some people have even created T-Shirts to let there friends and neighbors know that they are going and willing to take orders. Now, for MI, they have to run all the way to the state line, (as if it were Sunday).
    I may be wrong.

    Neville says MillerCoors must remove the beer because they did not renew their brand label registration with the state before the shutdown began. By law, brewers must renew those registrations -- which show the label on each brand of beer -- every three years.
    The company tried to renew in mid-June, but the process got delayed when they wrote a check for too much money. Green said they sent in a new check, which the state received on June 27, but nonetheless got a letter three days later saying their brand licenses had expired.
    “We believe we’ve followed all applicable state laws on this," Green said.
    Neville said his agency has asked MillerCoors to develop a plan to remove the product from shelves and cease their distribution. He added that Anheuser-Busch will face a similar problem if the shutdown extends to October.
    must suck being the person who fubared this

    Prime example of too damn much government, causing a business to lose millions and millions of dollars, at who knows what effect on employees, over a trivial technical problem with a license.

    Blue moon isn't crap. It is delicious.
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    really? It seems to be a system that has worked prior to this, and an issue largely based on the mistakes and inactions of Coor's

    Getting a license to sell stuff is too much govt?

    I am pretty anti-gubmint myself, but to me, that seems well within the legitimate confines of local govt.
    I may be wrong.
