MONTAGNE: Every time Manning shouts Omaha this weekend, the businesses will donate $500 to Peyton Manning's foundation for at-risk children.

INSKEEP: Think of it as a drinking game, except nobody gets hurt. Let's start now. It's MORNING EDITION, from Omaha News. I'm Steve Omaha.

MONTAGNE: And I'm Renee Montomaha.

The saga of West Flanders Brewing’s attempt to name a beer for the Denver Broncos before Sunday’s AFC Championship is ending with the Boulder beer maker titling its latest creation after one of quarterback Peyton Manning’s cadence calls instead.

“Brett on the Broncos,” a blend of two Belgian-style beers fermented with wild Brettanomyces yeast, will be known going forward as “Omaha! Omaha! Brett!” the company announced Friday.

“To avoid any more unnecessary roughness from the NFL, we called an audible,” spokesman Marty Jones said in a news release. “We don’t think the folks in Nebraska will mind.”

Does anyone know if that Omaha commercial "Good luck Denver from your neighbor Omaha" was a national commercial?

I don't think it was ever played as a normal commercial. They released it through KETV and a lot of news media picked it up and played it.

Here's ESPN's segment on Omaha:

My wife said she saw it air at least two times before game time... question remains, whether it was local or national.

They actually aired it during a segment on NFL Live earlier this week.

Manning's charity to get $24,800 for his 'Omahas'

Peyton Manning's foundation for at-risk youth will receive a $24,800 donation for all the times he shouted "Omaha!" during the AFC championship game Sunday.

So I guess the final count was 31.

You can bet on how many times Peyton Manning will say 'Omaha' in the Super Bowl
Having delighted casual gamblers for years with important Super Bowl prop bets like the length of the national anthem, color of the postgame Gatorade bath and whether Kelly Clarkson will have a bare midriff, the folks at Bovada are catering a special Super Bowl prop to the game’s biggest star. This year, folks can wager on how many times Peyton Manning will say “Omaha” during the Super Bowl.

The current over/under is 27.5.

Fresh off pledging to donate $800 to Peyton Manning's charity for each time he uttered "Omaha" in the AFC Championship Game, the Omaha Chamber Of Commerce says it will now donate $1,500 for each time he yells the word during the Super Bowl.

The Nebraska city's business arm says a total of 15 local businesses are part of the donation, including: CenturyLink, Mutual of Omaha, First Bank of Omaha, Omaha Steaks, Omaha Stormchasers, Omaha Box Company, DJ's Dugout, Union Pacific, ConAgra Foods, Cox Communications, Brix, HDR, Northstar Financial, One Transcription Services and Oriental Trading.

Peyton and Eli (Along with some other QBs) have been using it for years so I don't think it will stop next year. I don't think it will be as big of a deal though.

Does anyone else think some in Omaha were just a little too flattered by all of the "attention."

No, Omaha just happens to have a lot of people that are very excited about their city.

I certainly do.

Close to nobody was ever that proud to say they were from Omaha until we got a little national mainstream attention.

And it's not like he chose the word Omaha because he thinks we have a super great city. He could just as easily have used "Idaho"

Just my thoughts; I'm happy its over.

Absolutely, for wanting the nation to think of Omaha has a major metropolis we sure looked very small townish for going ape sh!t over a NFL quarterback saying our name, like it's been said before he was just saying it cause it is a very easy cadence to hear.

And while yes it could be people were just excited about their city I would rather be known and have people excited because we our home to a director who is up for multiple Oscars with Alexander Payne, a growing local music scene, a world class Zoo, the CWS and a major arena with a top 15 College Basketball team that draws over 17k a game or what the Big Omaha event has come with people calling it the next SxSW. These our things that Omahan's can actually get behind and show people we are a major metropolitan area with more going on for it than a QB who underperforms in big games saying our name as a cadence.


Also Omaha is in the Chiefs Kingdom and the Ponies suck :o

I refuse to be a fan of any KC-based team.

Omaha should be proud of the things you mentioned and more. I was in Chicago for a meeting last week with people from NYC, Boston, Dallas, Phoenix, and San Antonio. No one made fun of Omaha. The QB thing didn't come up. Mostly, they were blown away by the immigration waves we are having.

Also, the oscars are not going to give Nebraska anything. The movie was good. The oscar voters are not going to give them squat. Not even tech awards.

Yes. I wanted to say something to that effect, but you said it perfectly.

For about a month, Omahans seemed like a bunch of giddy little school girls around a cute boy. "hehehe, he said Omaha"!! :)

People don't talk about Omaha much. It is nice to get some good conversation that doesn't involve horrible weather or economic disasters. It was a fluke that he used Omaha and it will be a different word next season. Roll with it.

Rather have a bunch of giddy Chamber of Commerce people getting ink for a big donation to charity over this than yet another story about a tornado or some dismissive piece on our midwestern culture. "Wow, who thought that you could find really cool X in Omaha?" How many times have we read that meme?

Don't get me wrong, I understand that it was a good thing for Omaha. I love Omaha as much as any of us here, and its rare for me to negatively criticize anything to do with Omaha. I'm just saying that we could have gotten the publicity without the corny local news commercials and without the rest of the nation thinking we are all super elated to be in the national spotlight because a good athlete says our name.

Oh well, I'm done being negative about it.

A) I doubt that's true. I distinctly remember seeing Broncos gear more often than Chiefs gear when I was there, and the Chiefs were semi-respectable then.

B) Let's not hitch our city's wagon to the abysmal team that is the Chiefs. After all, they haven't won a playoff game in like...a generation.
