This is my beer store, and if I go more than two weeks without going there, I feel empty inside. So I will try to stay unbiased. For what is available in Nebraska, the selection and quality is at the top. They do a pretty good job moving beers through and are extremely knowledgeable about beer--that's all they do after all. The service is unmatched. The employees are never shy to offer their two cents in an unpretentious way; plus, they will give samples and split a beer or two if you are curious about a beer. I love this place, and even though Omaha has gotten a few other good beer shops in the past couple years, this place will always be my home beer store. And it doesn't hurt that it's all a part of the wonderful beer corner (Crescent Moon, Max and Joes, and Huber Haus).

I am still amazed at how much beer they cram into this tiny shop. Not shit beer either. This is great stuff. The guys know their stuff too, and are great for recommending new beers.

Beertopia is an oasis of great beer in Omaha, a place where an outsider may think there won't be any good beer, but would be seriously mistaken. This is not a huge store but has a great selection of beer, including some good midwestern beers that are not available on either coast. The dudes that work in there are very friendly and enthusiastic and have nice beer tastings frequenctly. This store is aptly named given its location, if you happen to be in Omaha and are looking for good beer you'll be very pleased when you stumble into Beertopia.

First time at the store review: staff were friendly in extremely helpful / informative. Helped me and discussed selections to try based on current favs.

Free State sampling rep there at time of visit and with several customers in store, was not impressed with either the beer or the rep.

As a business traveler, value was reasonable to a bit above, but selection surpassed Hy-Vee that I had maxed out on potentially new sampling prospects (so may not be saying much--only time and additional trips to store will tell).

Store is linked to several bar/taverns next door to them, but have not yet "sampled".

Overall, the guys there treated you with respect and genuinely interested in helping you.

Will go again and update review accordingly.

It took me awhile to find an outlet that had Schlitz without having to drive forever, X2 if you figure in a round trip. The beer I had been looking for was Schlitz. Beertopia is like mother's milk and the big bang theory all in one place. Big Bang Theory, so much beer crammed in one space and BAM, some ended up on the warm shelf and some on the cold sheves. Doesn't matter what is there as long as the consumer is content. On my first visit, the gentleman in the store asked if there was something in particular I was looking for. As soon as I said the name, he pointed out where it was in the store and said he also had cold brew on hand. Friendly, and if you don't see it, someone will point it out for you. I won't say 650+ brews in a small store is a bad thing. If you're concerned about that, then this store would be a put off. But if you're looking for that elusive brand, this is the place to start.
