7Sisters Brewing Company7Sisters Brewing Co. in San Luis Obispo is offering a free gourmet grilled cheese sandwich to federal employees affected by the current government shutdown. From Friday, December 28, 2018 until the government reopens, federal employees who are not being paid can receive a free classic, caprese, or sweet and savory grilled cheese sandwich and side salad by showing their federal ID card.

Owners Steve Van Middlesworth and Emily Taylor, who are both government employees by day, want to help out federal employees in the local community who are not receiving paychecks by providing them with a meal. “We have both been furloughed before, and we know how hard it can be to make ends meet, especially around the holidays,” says Van Middlesworth.

7Sisters Brewing Co. features sustainably brewed beer along with cider, wine, kombucha, craft soda, and delicious food including vegan and gluten free options. 7Sisters is committed to sustainability and supporting initiatives focused on the environment and local community.
