MINNEAPOLIS — Brewing giant MillerCoors says it wants to work with Minnesota officials to try to resolve a huge problem resulting from the state government shutdown.

The state has told MillerCoors it needs to pull its products from stores, bars, and restaurants statewide because their license renewals couldn't be processed by the July 1 shutdown and have expired. The employees who process the renewals were laid off when state government shut down in a budget dispute.

Department of Public Safety spokesman Doug Neville said Wednesday that Chicago-based MillerCoors LLC has been told to come up with a plan for pulling its products in a few days.

MillerCoors spokesman Julian Green says the brewer hopes to solve the dispute through discussions with state alcohol regulators, but didn't rule out legal action.
