Located in the historic downtown area of Omaha NE. It would seem to the place to have a brewpub with the local walking traffic and exposed brick buildings. Perfect location to have a pint!
The inside is your normal dark wood and brass with exposed brick and brew kettles highlighted. Nice and clean with a good oval bar that allows for conversation and elbow room.
The food selection and quality was good for a brewpub. I would reccomend the steak, as it is Omaha!
In terms of beer...they have a beer engine with a good selection. The normal IPA, Porter, and light beer are there for uninitiated. However, they do have a rotating beer engine along with some tasty seasonals. I liked the fact that they have lagers AND 750ml of exotic beers like barley wines and Grand Cru's if you are so inclined.
While, I don't think I would make a special visit for Upstream (like I would for Russian River, etc) this is a top 3 place to visit while in Omaha. They have a great location and solid beers. Check em out!
