MADISON (WKOW) -- State tax officials are helping craft breweries and wineries left in limbo by the federal shutdown because they couldn't get federal approval for new labels and recipes.
Friday, officials said in-state brewers can sell new products within the state, even if they don't have federal label approval, if they've completed an application for federal label approval.
However, brewers who need the feds to okay new recipes will have to wait until the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, the TTB, is open again.
The agency was closed as part of the federal government shutdown.
