This is part of the growing Crescent Moon complex, overseen by local beer guru, BDitty187 (I understand that he has since moved on - ed.). As soon as I got into town on this trip, I cabbed it over to see the establishment that was only in the works on my previous visit in July 2006. The counter was to the immediate left and BDitty187 was happy to see me as I walked in. Aft of the counter, running down the left-facing wall, were racks of bottled beers. An extensive bank of coolers ran along the right wall and held bottles, CANs, sixers, you name it. I personally bought a sixer of CANs from Thunderhead BC in Kearney, NE. This would be the penultimate stop for beer in Omaha, NE IMHO. (737 characters)

BEST IN OMAHA! Great selection, prices, knowledge, and it seems most of the times I go in they are having a sampling of something = Awesome! I'd say the only downside is limited space. (184 characters)

Little shop has sort of a convenience store-like feel to it. However, it is a store with a nice selection of all the major releases from a number of craft brewers, national and local, most of them refrigerated. Quite a large selection of imports, as well (some chilled, mostly singles, from what I noticed). Definitely had some large formats, but focus seems weighted towards small format and 4/6 packs.

Staff was nice, offering to help multiple times. Eventually I got to asking for suggestions and was given numerous suggestions, with a description of what I should expect from each offering. Nice little place we'll be sure to visit again in the future. (662 characters)

So much awesomeness in such a small space. I want to pick it up and take it home with me. (90 characters)

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. (182 characters)

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. (547 characters)

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. (744 characters)
