This was the 178th brewpub I've visited in north america (where they brew their own beer on site). Business travel has its advantages.

I sat outside on a cool night and my only trip inside was for the restroom. From what I saw, the place had a cool interior and it looks like they have some sort of rooftop garden. It's in what's probably the coolest section of downtown Omaha which makes it a no brainer if you're in town. Lots of neat shops and restaurants if you want to eat elsewhere although our meals were both very good.

The beer. Well, anyplace that serves a double IPA is fine in my book. In fact, they didn't have a pale or standard IPA which seems a bit weird. I should have asked how much of the double they sell. Seems like a risky beer to have on tap. They also had a nice Belgium sesional and an ESB which were both very good.

The only problem I we had was the hilljacks behind us chain smoking the entire evening. It was outside so not too bad.

Went on 7/12/16 for a early birthday dinner (birthday is 7/16) with the wife and it was her idea to go here. It was a Tuesday night and there was a 30 minute wait but we went to the bar area and found a table. Ordered 4 appetizers and 2 flights of beers which came 4 4-ounce glasses for $6.00. Lots of good brews on tap including some interesting seasonals. Tried their "Blood Orange Wit" which was a fantastic brew that isn't likes on here as of yet. A interesting "Cucumber Belgium" which was tasty also isn't listed on here as well. Overall, the brews was really good as well as the service. Their "Fried Chess Curds" were good with a great dipping sauce BUT there was just a few pieces which consisted on mostly crumbs. Told the waitress that and she really didn't care much and just said: "Well, they weigh them up." Wasn't real happy with that response. The other plates were of decent portions. Overall, I would go back though it would probably be better during a weeknight then the busy weekend. No free parking unless it is after 9 PM as you have to park in the street with a hungry parking meter.

Vibe - MASSIVE old building that is in a great neighborhood. due to the location and size there are a lot of families.
Quality - while the variety is great the beer was okay. nothing mind blowing, but okay.
Service - the place was slammed and the server seemed quite busy.
Selection - lots of IPAs, but a cask and nitro selection as well.
Food - great food options.

Overall I enjoyed the place, but it is a HUGE building with lots of people.
