government shutdown impacting breweries

3 craft breweries in our area may soon start to feel the effects of the government shutdown.like many government agencies, the alcohol and tobacco tax and trade bureau or ttb is closed.that makes it impossible for breweries, wineries and distilleries to get approval on certain products.news 18's demie johnson shares what steps people's brewing company is taking to make sure business there runs smoothly.

3&lt;a lot goes into packaging and selling craft beer.chris johnson: "all the things on the label are in the right sizes, all the government warnings are there, all your package size information, where it was brewed."

People's brewing company owner chris johnson says getting approval is normally a pretty quick and easy process that takes between five and ten days.

Chris johnson: " they seem to have really stepped their game up but this isn't going to help."

But the partial government shutdown is causing breweries, wineries and distilleries to experience permit delays.the ttb issues permits for new businesses to open, craft a new beer or wine, or create labling for a product.johnson says people's will be able to make it through the shutdown.however it will be impacted as soon as the government opens back up because it's going to take the ttb a while to catch up.chris johnson: "they'll definitely be back logged and we've seen this in the past when they've been short handed and it can get to the point where those approvals take a long time and that will continue to affect breweries down the line."

That means people's won't be coming out with any new beers until the government re-opens.chris johnson: "we just adjust our brew schedule and put out beers that we already have approvals for and keep kind of rolling with the ones we've already got going."

Johnson says the longer it goes on, the worse it will be.chris johnson: "some of it may make an impact that could almost take out somebody starting a new business."

Reporting in lafayette, demie johnson news 18.> 3 tomorrow begins the fourth week of the shutdown.
