[h=2]President Trump's 17-day border wall government shutdown stalemate threatens beer and wine supplies as vital regulatory body is forced to close its doors[/h]
Airport security and National Parks aren't the only casualties of the 17-day border wall stalemate between President Trump and congressional democrats that's caused a partial government closure - alcohol supplies could be next on the list too.
Craft beer breweries and wineries across the US - who regularly roll out new and experimental concoctions - may see their seasonal spring flavors abandoned, as the government agency responsible for approving labels for new drinks has been forced to close its doors.
Until lawmakers strike a deal to conclude the shutdown, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) will remain inactive, meaning no new varieties of alcoholic drinks will be found on grocery store shelves or in local breweries.
OK. Now it really is a crisis!!
