"We always come out with new, exciting beers. That's what we stand for," said Mike Alcorn, founder of CB Craft Brewers.
Harvest Jack and Mac Bubba are a couple of CB Craft Brewers new beers that barely made it on the shelf.
"Going to the beer section of the supermarket. You go see all this nice, new, innovative stuff. The breweries still come up with great ideas and can't sell it."
The federal Alcohol Tax and Trade bureau regulates the recipe and packaging labels on all craft beers. No approval, no brewing.
The bureau's website is shut down, and no one answers the phones, which means as long as the government is out of business, many small business owners are going to lose money.
CB Craft Breweries is a new name the company rolled out in August, so the government needs to approve all new labels, even on previously sold beers.
New packaging with the CB logo on it just made it through the approval process in September, but there are recipe applications that are stuck in limbo until the shutdown is over.
If the shutdown continues, new brew recipes for St. Patrick's Day and the spring season will be sitting on an empty desk in Washington.
"If you can't do the things you expect to do, because of a government snafu, yes it could keep a brewery that's planning to open from ever opening."
