GRAND RAPIDS (WTOL) - Wild Side Brewing Company, 24194 Front St. in downtown Grand Rapids, is doing its part to help government workers affected by the shutdown.

During the shutdown, which entered its 27th day on Friday, any federal employee who is not being paid can get a free beer and a pizza – every day until the shutdown ends – by showing his or her government ID.

In a Facebook post, the brewery wrote: “We know this doesn’t solve any of the problems you’re facing right now, but we hope it helps you to maybe forget them for a while and enjoy yourself with us here in downtown Grand Rapids, Ohio, while you wait for things to go back to normal.”

Owner Nick Scott told WTOL: “Hopefully this spreads to the other breweries and businesses in the area.”
