Shutdown forces MillerCoors to pull beer from shelves | StarTribune.com

Shutdown forces MillerCoors to pull beer from shelves | StarTribune.com: "Miller Time in Minnesota is over -- until lawmakers reach a budget deal.
The state's government shutdown, now in its 13th day, will soon force MillerCoors to pull its beer from Minnesota liquor stores, bars and restaurants. A state official says the law requires the company to remove products like Coors Light, Miller Lite and Blue Moon imminently.
'I would suspect within days to see that product leave the shelves,' said Doug Neville, a spokesman for the Department of Public Safety.
A MillerCoors spokesman said they are fighting the decision, which would decimate one of its largest markets in the country.
“Right now we are exploring all options that are available to us,' said spokesman Julian Green. 'We are currently in discussions and hoping that we can get a resolution with the state, with the agency that enforces the sale ... of alcohol.”
Neville says MillerCoors must remove the beer because they did not renew their brand label registration with the state before the shutdown began. By law, brewers must renew those registrations -- which show the label on each brand of beer -- every three years."
