The best brewery in Nebraska. Their flagship Cardinal Pale Ale carries a strong lineup of beers. If you are looking for a great brewery this one is a must try.

Stopped in while passing through town on weekday and had some good beers. I stopped in in the early afternoon so it was very slow which gave me an opportunity to ask the bar tender some questions. The service was good and the set up was similar to any brew pub located in a strip mall. A nice bar with 15-20 seats which was separated from the dining area. They had brew tanks right behind the bar which was cool to see and more in the back. This is their original location which was amazing considering how widely traveled and acclaimed their beers are.

Beers were good, I had their Cardinal Pale Ale and Hop God. I would have gotten a flight to try out more of their beers but I wanted to try these both. Pale ale was well balanced and a nice refreshing beer. Hop God is a big Belgian IPA and was definitely my favorite.

I recommend checking this place out and their new location as well. I didnt have any food, so no comment their. They distribute across the US so check out their bigger beer series too if you get a chance.

On day four of our cross country trip we took a small detour in Nebraska to make this stop at one of Vickie's favorite brewers. The brewpub is located in a modern, sprawling reail plex and is surprisingly small given the number of bottles they seem to put out. A nice place, clean and with both inside and outdoor seating and a decent sized bar area.

The sampler was very nice across the board (no pale ale for whatever reason). We went with an IPA, a hefeweizen, a red and a seasonal Belgian, all very nice. Food was solid but not exceptional. Service was very nice but unattentive. We had to go looking for the server whenever we wanted something. Oddly enough you can not buy merch at the pub, only online which was kind of a bummer.

On the whole though very nice people (the brewer and one of the owners stopped by to chat when they found out we were from out of town) and worth the hour or so detour for sure.

My wife and I stopped twice in Omaha for an overnight and came here for beer and dinner when passing through town on a vacation trip (coming and going). The pub is located in a newish retail area with multiple store buildings with exterior entrances, and not the standard enclosed mall setting. The interior setting tends toward a new, sterile feeling, but the sitting area where the bar is located has a good vibe to it. There is also a patio.

We ordered a sampler so that we could try all of their beers, and 8 beers were included. We typically don't enjoy the light-flavored beers (Blonde, Wit and a Wheat), but we drank them so that we could evaluate them to style. Each was brewed very close to their respective style, and all of them were tasty. I liked Hop God (a Belgiany IPA) the best. The brewery has a barrel-aged line of beers (I think it was 4 of them), but none were available on tap (carry-out only in 22 oz bottles, plus bottles of the Hop God.)

The food menu has enough items on it so that anyone coming here would find something to their liking, and all of it sounded very good. We were quite satisfied with our selections.

If we stop in this area again we'll definitely come back here.

Tyson Arp (Head Brewer) and his wife, Angela are some of the nicest people on earth! Wonderful beers of which their Hop God aged in French Oak Chardonnay barrels stands to rank in my Top 10 of all time. 2013 marks an enormous growth, as they are expanding to include a production facility and will be canning (4) of their flagship brews. I wish them all the best and thank them for all of the hospitality.
