I was passing through Omaha & found this place on BA. I am so glad I did. it is a large space with a warm & welcoming vibe. I It is a large rectangular bar w/ an old time feel to it.The beer was excellent as was the food. The service was good, but not perfect. I have nothing negative to say. The prices are reasonable , the beer is inexpensive. The food prices were competitive. I will return @ every opportunity.

Located in the heart of the Old Market section of Omaha, this place is hopping from all of the tourists and gawkers in the area. The food is good but predictable for brew pub. The place is huge and still had a one-hour wait at 7 p.m. on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend.

There were about 10 beers on tap, mostly pale ales. Again, for this part of the country, there is a dearth of darker beers with only a (hoppy) Scotch Ale fitting this category.

Service was busy, efficient, pleasant and minimal. The waiter hit all the right notes, but he was hustling throughout our meal.

On the road from NH to CO. First brewery stop. Totally random just because I have never been to the city of Omaha. This isva beautiful old factory building, very huge space. Good thing. The place was booming on a Wednesday night. The service was actually very fast for the place being pretty much full. The food was on the excellent side of creative pub food.

A nice combo of styles popular to the region. Missing NE ipa's. Very reasonable prices compared to New England. Beautiful place.

Large space in a brick building in the Old Market district of Omaha. Beers were all good. Their selection is pretty nice with the year-round beers plus about 6 others. They had one (Flagship IPA) on cask. Did not eat any food.

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.
