This was the 178th brewpub I've visited in north america (where they brew their own beer on site). Business travel has its advantages.
I sat outside on a cool night and my only trip inside was for the restroom. From what I saw, the place had a cool interior and it looks like they have some sort of rooftop garden. It's in what's probably the coolest section of downtown Omaha which makes it a no brainer if you're in town. Lots of neat shops and restaurants if you want to eat elsewhere although our meals were both very good.
The beer. Well, anyplace that serves a double IPA is fine in my book. In fact, they didn't have a pale or standard IPA which seems a bit weird. I should have asked how much of the double they sell. Seems like a risky beer to have on tap. They also had a nice Belgium sesional and an ESB which were both very good.
The only problem I we had was the hilljacks behind us chain smoking the entire evening. It was outside so not too bad.
