    Much ink has been spilled either bemoaning or defending the government shutdown, including on the "pages" of PJ Media. Outside of the fact that my wife's commute to her office across the street from the U.S. Capitol is much quicker than it was a few weeks ago, the whole thing is mostly white noise to me. (I'm sure I deserve criticism for my callous lack of interest.) For the most part, the shutdown has not been able to find a dance partner in my head, until now. And the shutdown is now personal because I've discovered that it's affecting beer...

    Craft beer drinkers in the U.S. may see fewer new bottled beers coming out in the next few months. That's because the federal agency that approves brewery labels is closed, a result of the government shutdown. The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau is part of the U.S. Department of the Treasury. One of the TTB's jobs is to review beverage alcohol labels for things like alcohol content or fluid ounces in a bottle.

    In a seemingly spontaneous livestream posted on Instagram that channeled similar social-media efforts by former Texas Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke and incoming New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren cracked open a beer on-camera and took some questions from her followers on New Year's Eve. Warren announced at a news conference outside her home hours earlier Monday that she was filing paperwork to launch an exploratory committee for president, becoming the first candidate to take the major step toward a 2020 run -- and she reminded her audience that the day had been a break from...

    Pabst Brewing Company and MillerCoors are going to trial, with hipster favorite Pabst contending that MillerCoors wants to put it out of business by ending a longstanding partnership through which it brews Pabst’s beers. The case has high stakes for Pabst, whose lawyers argue that the company’s very existence relies on the partnership with Chicago-based MillerCoors, which produces, packages and ships nearly all its products, which include Pabst Blue Ribbon, Old Milwaukee, Natty Boh and Lone Star. MillerCoors, meanwhile, says it’s not obligated to continue brewing for Pabst and that Pabst doesn’t want to pay enough to justify doing so....

Here’s what she said: “No, people often say, like, how are you going to pay for it and I find the question so puzzling because ‘How do you pay for something that’s more affordable? How do you pay for cheaper rent?’ You just pay for it. We’re paying more now.”
