Default No more MillerCoors for Minnesota

Thanks to a paperwork issue and the state shutdown, no MillerCoors for MN

LOL

If the state is shut down, how are they going to enforce it?

Nice. Wonder how that'll pan out!

WeirdBoy, it's a partial shutdown, law enforcement entities are still in operation. Licensing facilities are only accepting applications, not processing them. If MC didn't get their licensing in time, they might be SOL.

I'm intrigued with the idea that a state in a government shutdown, obviously operating on very limited resources, would expend those resources in order to keep this beer off the shelves. Priorities!

I think what actually happens will be dictated by the size of the possible fine if they don't remove their products.

The state shut down is not only affecting MillerCoors but also local craft breweries. For example, Steel Toe Brewing is ready to start brewing but can't until they get their boiler inspected by the state.

Our rich crybaby Gov is the main problem in this state. He is so used to getting his way all his life, when he doesn't he takes the ball and goes home. Another thing, people are getting fines for not having current license on their vehicles, but the license bureau is shut down. Catch 22

Seems like you are in need of a badass wrestler to run for governor to whip the state back into shape!
