Solid beers, but I was most impressed with the Fairy Nectar Project I DIPA, even got a crowler of it to (the one in Coyotes photos). Its not quite on the level of some of the completely awesome "Funky Hazy Thick Juicy DIPA" that Boiler Brewing has, but its the closest thing I have had from an Omaha brewery. (Not that I have had every beer from every brewery in Omaha, so apologies if someone makes something similar). Nice place, definately going to be in my Omaha brewery rotation.

Nebraska has so many great breweries these days, it would be super easy for someone to only drink beer brewed in Nebraska and be totally satisfied! I might try it for a month.

Now selling at your local Hy-Vee, Kros Strain: Helles Creek.
Helles or He11 is a traditional German pale lager beer, produced chiefly in Southern Germany, particularly Munich.

Coyote Trivia:
What Omaha Creek originates around Boystown
and merges with the Papillion Creek near 108th & Giles, just north of Kros Strain?

I was in Costco this weekend and noticed they had cases of Brickway selling for around $25.

There were I think 3 flavors in the 12 pack, but I can only remember two of them. The PILS and Coffee Stout.

The 16.9 size is actually because of the metric conversion. 16.9oz=500ml, or half liter. Traditional German breweries have been selling this particular size for years.

Beau Starkel was talking about this right after they opened, so they have had their eyes on the bay to the east for months.

Added Beer Code Co. to the list in Lincoln.
Moved Spilker Ales (Cortland - 1996) and noted its change.

Sounds Good, but I think I will add "Craft Satellite Breweries" in case one of the big guys shows up...

5168 Brewing in Lincoln is Local's Charles Yin entrance into brewing.
"Local homebrewing legend, Brian Hoesing" will be his Brewer.
Looks like it will be next to Zipline's Beer Hall at 56th & Pine Lake Rd.
Should be up and running by January.

Green Flash Pulls Distribution From 33 States, Eliminates 15 Percent of Workforce

Part of Green Flash’s long-term strategy includes placing small brewpubs in “earlier-stage markets,” starting with in Lincoln, Nebraska. In August, Green Flash acquired the former Ploughshare Brewing Company location as well as an extra 10,000 barrels of capacity. That space is slated to open in the first quarter of 2018
