I had a great time here with my brother. I wasn't expecting world class beer in Nebraska, but I got it anyway.

The building looks like any sort of chain restaurant/ middle America restaurant, and inside is the same with flat screen tvs and a big long bar. However, this place sets itself apart with California Chardonnay barrels all over the place.

The beer selection is solid, with a few standouts like Hop God and Summertime Rye.

My brother and I shared a plate of onion rings that were very good - better than your standard onion rings.

On top of everything, the bartender was great, friendly, and hooked us up with a sample of a very green and tasty barleywine.

Stopped in here a few times but always seemed to be on a Wednesday night when they host their 'Trivia Night" and since it was always so loud and crowded, we skipped it. Anyway, stopped in at around 3 PM yesterday on 3/26/16 to get a few appetizers and try a brew or two. Since I tried 5 of their 'common' brews before that are sold in cans locally, I wanted to try something I haven't seen or tried. What I tried would be their "Apricot Saison" which was served in own of their "13-ounce snifter glasses for $7.50. I also got a free 2-ounce sample of their "Infinite Wit" which was tasty also. order 2 appetizers which was a "Margherita Flatbread" for $8.99 and their "NBC Antipasto Platter" for $10.99. Both came out very fast, in like 5 minutes which surprised us both. The flatbead was good and very tasty and worth the money while the antipasto was nothing special at all and worth maybe half of what they charged. Not a great valve or really tasty at all. Service was decent. Wanted to by their snifter glass but the server said it was $7.00 BUT if I go to their other location in West Omaha , it would only be $5.00. What? Seriously? Even after I drank a brew and spent close to $30? I didn't buy the glass. Overall, which their brew was good, some improvement is needed.

Once you get past the families and strip mall the beer is great. Service this last time was a bit interesting, but the place is a must stop if you are driving through Nebraska. Or if you live there, I am jealous of the beer you get to enjoy.

Very good food, very good beer, EXCELLENT service! The only drag was that the server told me how much better the other location would be. Now I have to go back to Omaha for another visit!

The best brewery in Nebraska. Their flagship Cardinal Pale Ale carries a strong lineup of beers. If you are looking for a great brewery this one is a must try.

Stopped in while passing through town on weekday and had some good beers. I stopped in in the early afternoon so it was very slow which gave me an opportunity to ask the bar tender some questions. The service was good and the set up was similar to any brew pub located in a strip mall. A nice bar with 15-20 seats which was separated from the dining area. They had brew tanks right behind the bar which was cool to see and more in the back. This is their original location which was amazing considering how widely traveled and acclaimed their beers are.

Beers were good, I had their Cardinal Pale Ale and Hop God. I would have gotten a flight to try out more of their beers but I wanted to try these both. Pale ale was well balanced and a nice refreshing beer. Hop God is a big Belgian IPA and was definitely my favorite.

I recommend checking this place out and their new location as well. I didnt have any food, so no comment their. They distribute across the US so check out their bigger beer series too if you get a chance.
