My final stop during the Nebraska beer tour. It was preceded by its reputation as the must-visit beer bar in all of Nebraska. Rightfully so, maybe...

Perhaps I can't appreciate what it means to have a great beer bar in Omaha, but I found this place lacking. They did have a nice variety of taps that drew from across the country (Colorado, Missouri, the Coasts), and they did a fine job of featuring brews from many Nebraska breweries (Spilker, NBC, Empyrean, Modern Monks). As it was Monday, they had a killer deal on NE beers--$2.50 a pint. That sort of deal gives this place legs!

It's a dark, carpeted, single room with lots of brewery schwag adorning the walls and ceiling. It does feel a little cluttered. The bar sits prominently in the front, and they have several chalkborads displaying the current offerings. I was disheartened by the bartender's inability to locate one of the Empyrean taps (I eventually found it for him).

The fact that the Belgian beer bar, the German beer hall, and the great beer store are attached does make this a sort of must-visit location for beer travelers. Just don't expect Falling Rock, Horse Brass, or the like: in a 'craft beer city,' Crescent Moon would be second tier. (1,217 characters)

Perhaps the premier craft drinking experience in Omaha, with a ton of taps and bottles to choose from. This place had Founders Devil Dancer on tap, a beer I had never even seen on this side of the Mississippi, no less the Missouri. Servers really know their beer which is no surprise, as next door is the best beer store within perhaps a 500 mile radius. Outstanding. (370 characters)

One of my favorite bars to go to in Omaha, Ne. Great tap list and bottle selection. 2 other bars and a bottle shop all attaches making this an all around great experience. Also the food is too notch, blu burger is my favorite. The crescent moon is an awesome place to go wether your just going to hang out and grab a beer or party with a group of people. The service is awesome and everyone working there is very nice and knowledgable about their beers and menu. (462 characters)

My wife and I stopped by here on a trip back home over the winter holiday.

We were there on a Thursday night and this place was packed. Felt really nice - warm - being in a bar full of people.

Quality of the brews were phenomenal. The place itself was tidy and comfortable.

Service was excellent. We were in and out in under an hour.

Selection was great. They had quite a bit of stuff from the smaller regional breweries.

Food was delicious and reasonably priced.

If you find yourself in or passing through Omaha, this should be on your list. (548 characters)

To start with, Crescent is part of a complex of beer bars. There's the Uber Haus downstairs, the Belgian bar through a hallway, and Beertopia bottle shop next door. So yeah, really the best building in Omaha, if you ask me :) It's a little compound of beery goodness.

Crescent has amazingly good prices for draft beer, especially on their happy hours and special nights, which are every weeknight basically. There's a Boulevard night, a New Belgium night, a free pint glass night, .40cent wings, half price apps, etc.

Two of us can get dinner and two beers a piece and our bill's only $20. That's what I'm talkin' bout!

Tap list is really nice, over 20 taps I believe, with local goodies as well as a good Colorado showing (Odells, NBelgium, boulder, etc) and goodies from farther away.
Food is damn fine for pub grub, and service has been good the last three times we've been. It's become a new favorite for the wife and I...she has like 6 IPA's to choose from and me with my saison or whatever tickles my fancy that night. Good locals vibe. (1,047 characters)

I was in town for the CWS we went to the beer corner for everything I found the staff friendly and knowledgeable and using proper glasses and washing and even had a glass sprayer to wet the draft glasses. I went on a few nights while i was in Omaha and found all the bars there to be original! I do have to hand it to this place it is one of the best bars i have been in the Monks Café was flowing and I couldn't get enough of it! One night was Boulevard pint night and a very good deal buy the glass and 2 buck boulevard fills. The food was quite good my largest recommendation is to go down stairs and get a few real hot German pretzels! Great place great people! (666 characters)

For the Midwest, this is an excellent beer bar to go to. They have a very good selection of draft and bottles, and large seasonal rotation.

There is a rowdy German style bar downstairs from the main bar, selling German beer (watch out for Das Boot - $16), and a Belgian Bar in the room next to it selling Belgian beer.

All the beers I had were fresh and served in the correct glassware. Prices were quite reasonable, considering the quality of the beer being served.

My Reuben sandwich was excellent (they blurb on the menu said the Reuben was created across the street). Substitute your side for onion rings and thank me later. (633 characters)
