Zipline Brewing Co. is offering federal employees a free growler fill on Fridays during the government shutdown

With Congress gridlocked over a border wall, a local brewery has decided to take matters into its own hands.

Zipline Brewing Company on Friday passed the "Growler Relief Act of 2019."

The proclamation states that, "Commencing today and and continuing throughout the shutdown, this and every Friday shall be deemed, 'Furlough Fill Friday.'"

Zipline said any federal employee can receive a free growler on Fridays by showing identification proving their employment.

The offer is good at all of Zipline's locations in Lincoln and Omaha.

Another Lincoln brewery, Cosmic Eye, said on Facebook that starting Friday it would offer a free 13-ounce beer to federal employees with ID.
