The government is open again. Agencies across Wisconsin are dusting themselves off, after more than two weeks.
The government shutdown definitely impacted Wisconsin. National parks and forests were closed. It even slowed development at breweries.
Point Brewery is getting back on track.
A week ago, the brewery was trying to get started on its new winter and spring beers. But it couldn't get anything approved by the federal government.
"We're a very time-sensitive business where we have to have brewing and packaging has to be scheduled very precisely and to have any delay in any of that can really hinder our business," said Julie Birrenkott, Point Brewery Marketing Director.
Now, Point Brewers said they're back to business.
"Filed some labels, got them going, in the system and ready to go," said Birrenkott.
But it's not all rosy. Their new applications could face a backlog at the federal agency.
"We're not sure how long of a delay it may be, but hopefully we can get our labels through and our new beers will be able to be produced and packaged by the spring," said Birrenkott.
At the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest Supervisor's office, workers said things are getting back to normal and campgrounds being re-opened.
Steve Kalmon's restaurant, the Mondeaux Dam Lodge, is federally-contracted at the forest. It was forced to close.
"I'd got a call plus a letter and both of them stated I had 7 days to close my doors," said Kalmon.
But, he said it wasn't closed long enough to hurt his business and he's grateful.
"It was crazy seeing how this would affect me, cause I did not believe this would hit me out here," said Kalmon.
Now, many people said they're just happy to see things return to normal.
