Upstream Brewing is a solid, urban, "comfort brewpub" in downtown Omaha. Which is to say, this is your standard brewpub that does everything well, hitting all the right notes and then some.
Standard 'brewpub decor' atmosphere. It's spacious, woody, and the servers mostly wear dark colors. The beers--an impressive twelve on tap, inlcuding the two seasonals and cask option--were solid; I especially enjoyed the light lager, oatmeal stout, and cask IPA. The 'saison' is a great spiced beer as well, but it's not a saison in any traditional kind of way.
Friendly service, tasty food (a great reuben on homemade bread), and free WiFi to boot.
There were several bottled beers as well--a Flanders red, lambic, oak-aged tripel and small-batch barley wine--but they were priced too far out of my range.
There's nothing mind blowing here, but the quality is consistently above average throughout; highly recommended for anyone driving through Omaha.
