Great place downtown for quality micro/macro taps at a fair price. The addition of the closed off non-smoking side makes this place more appealing than it already was, and it provides for more seating and twice as many taps. Jake's has 5 or 6 doors of off-sale beer (including bombers & 6packs) plus a small walk-in humidor full of cigars. You can get the current beer menu through the TapHunter app on your phone too!

The place has a nice selection of beers and bourbons and people like to watch soccer here. The smoking ruins it though. They may as well serve bowling alley beers, because the only aroma you're going to get is ashtray here.

Visited on a Tuesday evening around 8pm. No empty seats.

Vibe - Smokey! Lincoln allows smoking inside bars (or at least it’s grandfathered). Not an issue for me, but then again I’m not used to it either since there are not many inside places I go where smoking is allow. So keep that in mind before you plan a visit. 3.75

Quality – I had just one beer, a summertime rye. A 16oz beer served in a big snifter. Glass was clean. Beer seemed to be close to the right temp. 3.75

Ser – Service was a bit slow. Very little interaction with the bartender. Took almost 5 minutes before anyone acknowledged my presence. I got the impression that the bar operated with the typical fast paced bartenders who don't pay attention to you unless you are a regular or you're a jerk. 3.5

Selection - Good selection of beers both local and national. Also a good variety of styles. For example they had Founders Breakfast Stout as well as an Odell’s Gose. BTW, the place has lots of spirits but they don't have 200 bottles of beer as noted in the place description. 4

One of the best places for craft beer in Lincoln. (The smoking is kind of a pain, but I guess that is not allowed anymore.)
Edit::: They now have a non smoking section. Its clean, and very well done. They also added about 20 more taps. Makes them about the best place in LNK for craft beer. (HR, a close second!)

They have 10-15 taps, all craft, and they get new stuff every week. One would be hard pressed to find a beer here they did not like.

Definitely worth a stop and visit!

Amazing selection, with an equally impressive bottle selection in back. Knowledgeable staff who really try to give you great service and serve your drinks right. I sat and puffed cigars while I sipped on a great variety of saisons, porters, barleywines, kolsch, and witbiers. I will definately be heading back to try all their selections. If you're ever in the area, stop here!
