Last week we started this summer’s beer series by updating you on the breweries in the Lincoln area, reviewing breweries we’ve already covered, and introducing you to breweries that have opened since last summer, or are planning to open by the end of 2017.
In June, we talked with Colby Coash from the Nebraska Craft Brewers’ Guild about the growth of craft brewing in the state, what’s happened in the Unicameral, and what is being done to help grow these local businesses.
So now, let’s talk about Nebraska’s biggest city, Omaha, and where you can go to get good, local beers and get to know where they came from.
Over the last two summers we profiled quite a few Omaha-area breweries:
- Benson Brewery
- Infusion Brewing
- Brickway Brewing and Distillery
- Nebraska Brewing Company
- Lucky Bucket Brewing and Cut Spike Distillery
Breweries in the Omaha area we haven’t covered:
- Farnam House Brewing Company
- Upstream Brewing
- Jukes Ale Works
- Kros Strain Brewing Company
- Pint 9 Brewing Company
- Scriptown Brewing Company
- Soaring Wings Vineyard and Brewing
- Vis Major Brewing
Additionally, Omaha is home to taprooms from breweries located in other parts of the state:
- Thunderhead Brewery based in Kearney,
- Zipline Brewing based in Lincoln.
Look for new satellite locations to come soon, as there are other breweries around the state looking to have a presence in Omaha.
As in Lincoln, more breweries are opening all the time.
Next Friday, we’ll introduce all the breweries in the Tri-Cities area (Grand Island, Kearney, Hastings) and finish up the month of July, and summer 2017 with the breweries in the other parts of the state.
