I was down south around Gretna the other day so on my way back I decided to stop in and see if I could find something different at this place (I had heard a rumor they might have bigfoot on thier shelves). The store is nice. Very clean and well lit. Typical product placement for a liqour store. Sections by types and parralell isles. Bank of coolers in the back is about 60% macros and other assorted liqours, with about 40% devoted to crafts/imports. One cooler was soley devoted to bombers, which was nice to see. I did not find all the Rogues that were mentioned but then again I was not looking for them either. There were four bombers of Rouges kept cool. Otherwise they typical Ayinger, Younge's, Boulevard, a few Lambics, and many psuedo mainstream sixers. Overall a nice place. The attendand asked me if I needed any help finding anything after I surveyed the coolers for a long while. I asked him about the bigfoot and he said the distributor was out when they placed thier order. Which tells me that they are trying at least. Prices were fair. If you are in the area stop and buy something. And ask them for other selections with patronage they may carry somethng new.

I stopped in a couple weeks ago. It is located in a small strip mall; it is kind of tucked away on a hillside. I think it is a bit difficult to see from 120th St. There is plenty of parking as it is a smallish store.

The beer selection is typical of Omaha. NB, Boulevard, Goose, SA, SN, and EmpyreanÂ… the standard Omaha craft beer domestics. The good imports were limited as well and nothing noteworthy stood out. I was very happy to see the wide section of Rogue bombers for very reasonable prices. As this store sits currently it is barely Beerfly worthy. Aside from the Rogue there is nothing to special about it. However, I did speak to the owner and he seems committed to adding more beer and increasing the selection in the upcoming months. I like the sound of that!

Manhattans is not a destination beer stop. Yes, stopping for the Rogues is worth it. I do hope the beer selection improves. As is, it is a good place for a six-pack if you live nearby.

Manhattans is located in a small strip mall just south of Center on 120th St. in Omaha. It is relatively new and has a very clean look inside. The store offers a decent wine selection and has plenty of liquor. No Laphroaig but they do have Lagavulin if you're into Scotch.

The beer is located straight in the back in a bank of coolers. There is a good selection, but nothing out of the ordinary in the coolers that can't be found elsewhere else in Omaha... Boulevard, Empyrean, Paulaner, Franziscaner, Sam Adams, Anchor, Sierra Nevada, Goose Island, New Belgium, etc. Having said that...
There is a reason to stop in. Straight in from the door in the third aisle is an entire section devoted to Rogue. Exactly twenty Rogue brews are available for $4.99 per bottle. If you buy six you get a seventh free. I've never seen so many in Omaha.
Available are Smoke Ale, Honey Cream, Chipotle, Festival, Brutal Bitter, Dead Guy, Juniper, Red, Santa's, Mocha Porter, Shakespeare, Half-a, Chocolate, Hazelnut, Morimoto's, American Ale, and more...
If you're looking for Rogue, this is the place.
I talked with the owner who said they pushed hard for the distributor to bring them in and even had to pay up front before the order. This is some great efforting worth patronage in my book.

The only drawbacks are the lack of Belgians and out of the ordinary Omaha offerings, but overall a good store.
