  Follow

Blue Blood Brewing Co. was founded in December 2011 by a couple of guys that had a love for craft beer and the Lincoln community.

The President and Founder, Brian Podwinski, was a Lincoln Police officer injured in a training accident leading him to a passion that sparked a light in the Lincoln community.

Our community is everything to us. We protected it as cops. We celebrate it as brewers.

Inspired by our roots in law enforcement and the home brewing scene, our beer is meant to bring people together. It's crafted using the finest ingredients. It's scrutinized for strict adherence to our standards. It's brewed to be savored among the best of friends. Because you have a right to know where your beer comes from. A right to great taste and great memories. A right to have a little fun. We swear to uphold those rights.

Blue Blood Brewing Company. Justice. Served.

Big Log Wheat
Blue Blood Brewing Co.  ·  Lincoln, NE
Lincoln, Nebraska is our homestead, Big Log Wheat was originally brewed for our friends at local landmark Wilderness Ridge. The name is a nod to the logs used to build that lodge-and the cabins of the pioneers who settled our state. The flavor is a trailblazing take on the Weizen style of wheat with great spice notes of clove.

Ethan's Stout

A great man desires a great beer. A friend of the academy, a brother on the force, Ethan tragically lost his life to cancer. He had good taste in brew and he would have loved the hand-crafted Stout named in his honor-with all of its roasted barley flavor, balanced by caramel sweetness. Here's to you, Ethan!

McKinney's Irish Pub Ale
Blue Blood Brewing Co.  ·  Lincoln, NE
We have a couple of Irish buddies that own a couple Irish pubs right here in Nebraska. For them and all the Irish in each of us, we created an easy drinking Irish Red Ale that has the soft caramel malt sweetness and mild toasty finish that Irish Red Ales are known for. If that didn't bring out the Irish in you we added just a wee bit of hop kick to balance it all out and wake you blokes up.

Merciless
Blue Blood Brewing Co.  ·  Lincoln, NE
In concocting this Black IPA [aka Cascadian Dark Ale], we showed no leniency. Sentencing you to malty, toasty notes and a judiciously high IBU, it drops the hammer with a heavy-handed dose of American hops. Hold nothing back. Make no Apologies. Be Merciless.

Okhrana
Blue Blood Brewing Co.  ·  Lincoln, NE
This Russian Imperial Stout owes its name to the secret police force charged with protecting the Russian Empire at any cost. Its bold, dark flavor was inspired by the prosperous reign of Catherine the Great. The Empire may have fallen, but the beer it inspired is strong as ever.

Pernicious
Blue Blood Brewing Co.  ·  Lincoln, NE
For those of us who didn't major in English, "pernicious" is a fancy word for "evil." It's an apt description of this double IPA and the subversive aroma created by an extra dose of hops - famously declared a "wicked and pernicious weed" by King Henry VIII in 1519. Raise a glass of Pernicious and toast the spirit of defiance.

Wicked Snout Farmhouse Ale
Blue Blood Brewing Co.  ·  Lincoln, NE
The inspiration for this Farmhouse Ale comes from well, the farm, as a young livestockman, our friend often hustled with the pigs during his daily chores. That good l'Nebraska farm boy is a lot like the yeast in this hardworking Saison, and those wicked little piggies are a lot like the hops. Be careful, they'll sneak up on you.
