I'm surprised at the lack of outraged comments in this thread, I'd imagine it would have over 100 comments, all bemoaning the lack of beer.

Not only those:

Meanwhile, existing brewers aren't spared the wrath of the shutdown. Without Certificates of Label Approval (COLAs) issued, no new beers can be sold or imported. Any new style or offering by an existing brewer can't be sold without first receiving a COLA. In fact, most states require a Federal COLA before brewers can get even apply to sell that beer in a state. New York is among those. Beers brewed previously can be brewed again, however, as long as the existing label hasn't changed.

I'm still OK with this.  Is it a shiatty deal?  Yeah, but I think we'll get by until the government re-opens or whatever.
I just don't get outraged as easily as some I guess.

Well - or welp -  if all those regulatory bureaucrats are quiescent for long enough, maybe the rest of us will figure out what we actually need to have done, and what is unnecessary and/or redundant or contradictory.

Of course, if we don't put them back on the payroll, I suppose we'll have to give them welfare.

There is a new brewery a few blocks from me that was slated to open in november. I'm sure the bank will just let them slide on the mortgage for a few months till they can get their permits, right?

With all the talk about the shutdown of the American government, I pause to wonder what would happen if the Ontario government were to "shutdown"? What about the LCBO? Would we still be able to buy beer, or would Toronto be burning by sundown?

Since we're a Westminister Parliamentary system, probably not, since a budget is automatically a confidence vote. Kady O'Malley explains it:

I say, NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION.
Let us not pay taxes on the money we earn for the days that the government is shut down.
If they are not representing us on those days, we should not pay taxes.

/Can you imagine 50 people a day not paying taxes?  Friends, they may think it's a movement!

People do realize this was a bill to give the Federal Government more credit right?

i have credit cards, I do not max them out. If I did max them out why would a bank or credit union give me more credit? It shows irresponsiblity. They should look at ways to spend less and more wisely, not ask for more credit... This is a very good chance for the people running the Federal Government to take time to see where they can cut spending. A good place to start would be with the ACA.

People do realize you're talking about the debt ceiling, which doesn't happen for two more weeks? That's where the congress gets to tell the executive branch whether or not it can borrow money to pay for the things that Congress told it to do.

The current issue is the passage of a budget (or a continuing resolution to keep doing what they've been doing.) Without that, there's no law stating how much money we're allowed to spend on things. So it's less like a credit card, and more like a... budget.

if they are slated to open next month then they should already have all that paperwork in order and working on first batches.

if not? well, yeah, that's a problem

Or for a cool grand, you can buy your own countertop minibrew system which supposedly brews to precise measurements so you get consistent brews each and every time.

You're allowed to make 100 gallons for yourself, or 200 gallons per household. Same quantities apply to wine.

Don't distill your own, though. That could get you in trouble with the revenuers. Even though they might be furloughed.

Why is the Federal government involved at all?  When the 21st Amendment took effect, it should have removed ALL Federal authority in this except when products crossed state lines.  Local permit for a business?  Sure, let the city, county, or state deal with that.

Meenwhile, here in the beer mines, I was wondering about the COLA thing and how it pertains to that craft beer club thing thats going down in December. We need to produce 1600 cases each of our brown, and pale ale and it has to all be out the door by Dec. 16th, which meens that process starts NOW, brew side at least, AFAIK the paper work side is already underway. the beer needs to be first shipped to NY, then from NY it goes to CA where all those cases are broken down and the bottles distributed in mixed cases to the beer loving public.
All that takes label approval for each state where the beer is being shipped too. as long as NY, and CA is done, there is no issue. for us at least.

I think the biggest weirdness we have right now is that while we are continuing to pay our federal excise tax, the TTB aint cashing the checks.

And up until Prohibition, tax on alcohol was probably the biggest cash cow for the federal government. Part of the comprimise to allow prohibition to go into effect was the establishment of personal income tax to replace lost tax revenu from booze sales.
