I've been in the Huber-Haus a few times but last Friday was the first time I really soaked up the scene.
I really enjoyed the German Bier Hall under the Crescent Moon. They had a variety of beers on tap served in the appropriate glassware.
The decor is very cool. A lot of dead stuffed animals on the walls along with tons of German memorabilia. The room has ton of wood paneling and beckons the look and feel of beer hall.
I enjoyed both of the half liters I had on tap. The bartender moved quickly and filled our fantastic meat and cheese plate quickly. The platter was good and I'm interested in trying other German dishes.
Though I haven't been here for Oktoberfest, I know this is one of the hotspots for that in Omaha.
The negatives about the experience is how loud it gets. The acoustics are just terrible. Even with a modest crowd, it was incredibly difficult to hear people at my table.
I definitely plan to go back again and this is another reason why 36th and Farnum is the best place to visit in town for beer with the variety of bars and Beertopia.

The Huber Haus, named after the owner's ex-wife (odd I know), once was a great stop for German beer and, it still is, (sort of). Yes, they have a great selection of German beer... all the helles lager, pils, hefe, and doppbock you'd ever want (in "proper" glassware). If German beer doesn't float your boat don't bother coming.
The décor is cool, lots of wood and stone and German beer signs... a few tables and booths and smallish bar in the back right. I should mention that this bar is located below the Crescent Moon and you need to enter the Moon to find it. As cool as the décor is I have to downgrade the 'atmosphere' because of the overall vibe created by the patrons and staff.
I *was* going to Huber Haus since it opened but I have grown tired of the massive amounts of drunken college kids drinking boots and acting a fool. The bartenders rarely seem to have control of the situation (which is partly because there are a million people in a small area). And I hate to say this but at night, late night the bartenders tend to be drunk or under other influences. Service can wane.
In conjunction with Crescent Moon (it's one big bar really) they put on a very good Oktoberfest. Family fun in the day... drunken foolishness at night (in both a good and bad way).
The German food that is served in the Huber Haus is not even close to the quality at Oktoberfest. I recommend skipping it.
One other note and I am not totally sure why this is, come Saturday night this place starts to stink like pee and sewer. I am not trying to knock this place but give it an honest review. The bloom is off the rose for me and the Huber Haus just don't do it for me. It is too loud, too crazy, too drunk... but if you can overlook that (or join in it, I guess) it can be a good place for German beer. And if you're really into it join the mug club... that reminds me, I should get the mug I left hanging there...

A Oasis of German Beir
The beer prices are exceptional. Liters for $6 on special.
Joing the mug club, a real bargain is you are planning on coming as often as I plan to.
Very confy for a basement bar. Large wooden common tables in the middle, a handful of booths along the walls. Small bar 6-7 seats.
There are 6 'standard' taps that have several Spaten and Warstiener beers. There is a special tap that had Monk's Fest last night (did I mention $6 liters?).
they have specials all the time, food and beer.
The staff is very knowledgeable. Top Knotch accross the board.
Huber House is in the basement of the Crecent Moon, lots of great stuff there too, but I typically stick to the basement.
This is simply a great place to drink great beer for cheap.

The Huber house sits in the basement of the Crescent Moon adding to the 36th and Farnam reputation as a "must visit" for anyone in search of good beer and grub while in Omaha.
As you walk down you're greeted by a mounted deer head. The walls are wood as are the bench style tables, booths and upright tables (One table is set aside for members of the Huber Haus' Mug Club members/only $20 for a life time membership which entitles you to daily discounts and special member only events). German beer memorabilia adorns the walls as does a large, flat screen tv.
The bar is excellent in that it's made of aging copper and has plenty of seating. The tap beer, of which there are 7-8 to choose from, is served in the appropriate glassware, no exceptions. The boot is a popular feature (thanks to Beerfest, people have abused the popular drinking vessel so there is a steep deposit and penalty for stealing or breaking a boot/otherwise it's cheap at only $16 to fill the 2-litre boot.)
To compliment the tap beer there are up to 50 bottles available to choose from, appropriate glassware is available for them as well. Barenjager, Jagermeister, Rumpleminz, Black Haus and the like are all available as well as a nice selection of German wines. Bratwursts specials occur on Saturday and warm pretzel and pretzel sandwiches, as well as the full Moon menu are always available as long as the kitchen is open.
The staff is great, always willing to explain a beer and lend a hand in choosing one. Knowledgeable and enjoyable to talk with.
this is a great place to enjoy authentic German beer the way it was meant to be drank, with friends. Prost!

This bar specializes in German Beer, food, and atmosphere. It is located in the downstairs area of the Crescent Moon Ale House, and is run by the same people. They have some wonderful beer on tap, and they know how to serve it! You can get 1/2 liter or 1 liter servings, and if you're really feeling the need, you can get beer in "the boot" glass.
Their selection of beer is very good, but obviously German-centric. The atmosphere is casual and very friendly. The bar staff is super knowledgeable. Everything about this bar is great! The one thing I wish they would do is increase their (German) food selection. They offer pretzels and wieners, but not much else. Of course you can still order from the Ale House menu... but I really wish they would expand the German food menu to include some schnitzel or something.
They have a mug club, which offers some nice benefits and discounts. At $20 for a lifetime membership, it's a decent deal, especially if you go there on Wednesdays to get %20-off keg beer.
Overall, I highly recommend this bar. If you are in Omaha, you owe it to yourself to visit this bar at least once; and if it's Oktoberfest, there's no better place to be!
