A local business is just getting over the red tape from the federal government shutdown earlier this year. And, they’re celebrating with a toast. The new Freehouse Brewery celebrated their opening in Minneapolis Saturday. The business finally got their brewery permit from the Treasury Department after about a month delay. It’s something they say couldn’t have been done without the help of Sen. Amy Klobuchar.
