Until today, I had never wished that I lived in Omaha...

Nebraska Brewing is one of the most recent additions to the Nebraska craft beer scene: it opened only seven months ago (that is, late 2007). Yet, there's some magic in the air here...a mix of the enthusiasm of a new (quality) brewpub and just plain, old great beer.

I added NBC to my list of places to visit while driving across Nebraska because of the recommendations from other BAs, and shortly after I quizzed the Midwest forum, Paul, the owner, shot me a BeerMail offering to give me a tour and talk me through the beers.

When I arrived, I was a little skeptical. An outdoor mall setting seemed more appropriate for a Gordon Biersch, Rock Bottom, or Big Horn Brewery. Aren't craft beers about localism after all? But my anxieties were quickly allayed. And, as Paul pointed out, the mall setting guarantees a great client base for a fledglng brewpub.

The interior is a chic, clean brewpub with glass windows onto the brewhouse and two-floor seating. It was clean, classic, and friendly.

I have sampled beer with brewers before and always a little hesitantly because I don't always manage to filter out harsh comments about the beer. As I sat down to sample the eight brews on tap (the five standards--hefeweizen, wit, APA, IPA, and nut brown; two seasonals--rye IPA, dubbel; and 'members only' club beer--weizenbock), my anxieties surged up...I reminded myself to be polite, cautious.

But then something strange happened. I didn't have to be cautious. Never, never, never did I expect that the beer would be this good. From a place so young, in such a variety of styles. I could genuinely gush about the beers here--the restraint with the spices in the wit, the nice caramel touch in the hefe, the complexity of the nut brown, the long peppery finish of the rye IPA--and Paul was equally enthusiastic to talk about them and share them. I didn't try the food, but if it were even in the same ballpark as the beer, it would be phenomenal.

This is a must visit for any 'serious' beerfly--a young brewpub with amazing beers.Currently, NBC is available at the brewpub and on tap in Iowa and Nebraska. I hope they conquer the country.
