 The government shutdown had a lot of people and businesses in limbo. One of them was a future Minneapolis brewpub.

Last week, we took you inside "The Freehouse", which couldn't get a license to brew beer because of the shutdown.

On Friday, they expect to find out when the federal government will process their paperwork, so they can start brewing beer.

The shutdown has already slowed production, the brewpub will only have time to make a few flavors of beer for their December opening.
