I think I found my favorite brewer in Omaha, NE...

Maybe it was the very inviting rustic decor, or maybe it was the very entertaining and educational conversation with the owners, or maybe it’s just that the beer I choose to try was plain good, but something left a very nice impression.

The location is at one far end of the Omaha Blackstone district, and the wood decor all around I find inviting and friendly. The owners were super friendly and when they learned I started home brewing myself were very forthcoming with tips and tricks.

The beers I had - a dunkel and a lager - were really drinkable and super good. I really can’t say enough if my experience. Hopefully someday I can return.

Speaking of their beers - what sets them aside is their, what I will call, ‘old school’ attitude. None of what they offer is fruity. All of it is European in nature, clear, and very tasty. In this age of “mango pineapple IPAs”, this was a refreshing experience.

Nice atmosphere to come catch a drink in. No games and a few TVs to watch. It’s usually dimly lit and darker than most places you’d normally go to drink at. Quality beer and have always had good service from the bar!

this place is awesome, a really cool old brick building that used to house a grocery store among other things from what i gather. exposed brick all over the place, some reclaimed wood features, brewhouse down below in the back, visible through a large window there, wrap around bar, cozy atmosphere, minimalist decor, simple but upscale sort of feeling, very welcoming. dudes behind the bar were great, and even got to chat to a brewer, who was both knowledgeable and humble, but happy to chat about his craft. awesome folks behind this operation no doubt. they had something like eight or nine beers flowing, all of which were great, at least the ones i had. they have a rotating series of coffee beers they call ups and downs, done with coffee from right next door. i had a belgian ipa with coffee that was absolutely awesome, and their yotus ipa was also delicious. a good mix of innovation and classic styles in here, all quite well executed. such a cool place to come check out, a very different sort of vibe than most other taprooms, and really great beer. this was easily my favorite of the omaha breweries i have visited!

Our experience at Scriptown was not good, not good at all. The service was the worst we've ever had at a brewery. After waiting for 30 minutes in a half full tap room, the beers were average at best. We did account for the fact that they had recently opened, and we may be back if they are still open in a few years. I do not recommend.

Vibe - WOW what a beautiful bar. amazing design and feel to this place.
Quality - I enjoyed the beers I had quite a bit.
Service - huge bar in the middle which blocked the view, but very friendly staff.
Selection - SESSION beers are their thing, but I enjoyed what I had.

Overall I would definitely go back. Wish they offered more than just session beers, but I thought the variety of sessions was great.
