    I will be in Omaha later this week and am looking for advice on good bottle shops in the area. I won't have a lot of time to spend hunting down beer because of my schedule so where should I go to find the best selection? I have heard about Beertopia, but what else is out there?
    Would also be interested in possibly setting up some IP trades (wrong forum I know).

    I would go to Beertopia and the Mall of the Bluffs Hy-Vee in Council Bluffs

    The Stony Brook Hy-Vee is my go-to. Beertopia when I'm in the area.

    To echo what has already been said, the three best beer selections are at Beertopia, StonyBrook Hyvee, and Madison Ave Hyvee (Mall of the Bluffs) in Council Bluffs. There are lots of other decent options but those are the three best by a long shot.

    Does Omaha get Lagunitas now? I may be stopping through Omaha next Tuesday, and would love to pick some of their brews up somewhere if possible. If not, Odell, Great Divide, etc. will have to suffice :)

    We've gotten Lagunitas for a couple of years now.
