ATLANTA, GA (CBS46) -

SweetWater Brewing Company offered relief to government employees out of work because of the government shutdown.

They invited them out Wednesday night for free admission to their brewery tour and tasting event. Those affected by the furlough say this is a much appreciated gesture of support.

"I love that they did this for us," said April Dawson. "We're a bunch of hard-working people that are sitting at home right now. It's great to come out and hang out with friends and have a good beer."

Guests with their federal government identification got the free brewery tours, a souvenir pint glass and six beer samples.
