Craft brewers in North Dakota are feeling the effects of the partial government shutdown. Jesse Feigum, owner of Drekker Brewing, says the Fargo brewery normally creates a new beer every couple of weeks. But new labels and distribution need approval from the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau. Until the shutdown ends Drekker and other local brewers can't sell anything out of state, other than the beers they've already licensed.
