Fall is here, although you may not know it yet based on these lovely 90 degree days.... but, this time in October, it should be here! We've been saving a couple delicious big brews from Lagunitas Brewing Co for you to help welcome the cooler days - Willet Whiskey Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout and High West-ified Imperial Coffee Stout. That's dope. Super dope. Willet: "A Big, Dark, and Scary Barrel-Aged Beast Our friends over at Kentucky’s own Willett Distillery have one kind of barrel: wood. And they put two things in them: Bourbon and Rye. We were fortunate enough to get some of their Bourbon barrels, and we put our Imperial Stout in them. It’s a chocolatey, coffee-y, smoky, Bourbon-y beast of a barrel-aged thing. Word." High West-ified: "This beer couldn't have been done without the help from our friends at High West Distillery in Park City, UT and Chicago's-own Metropolis Coffee. We brewed a rich, malty Imperial Stout with some of Metropolis' Spice Island blend, then let it vintag-ize in High West Rye and Bourbon Barrels for up to 17 FREAKING MONTHS. It's good to have friends!" I'm sure they'll have some neat swag for us, so come join us for a draw and get your big beers on. Cheers!

What's that? You like beer and are excited to welcome another brewery to Nebraska? Yea, we heard ya, because we do too! This time we have the pleasure of welcoming Clown Shoes Beer to our lovely state. These guys hail from Ipswich, Massachusetts and are hittin' the market runnin'. We'll be offering up 4 (at least, possibly another or two!) of their brews on tap, as well as a few options in bottles, most likely of limited stuff. That's rad! On deck we have their Mango Kolsch, Galactica India Pale Ale, Space Cake Double IPA, and Blaecorn Unidragon Russian Imperial Stout! Here's a quick blurb about these brews that are sure to be quite tasty: Mango: "We brewed a traditional, crisp Kolsch but then dry-hopped it with Huell Melon hops and added all-natural mango flavor. Warning: this beer is NOT Reinheitsgebot!" Galactica: "Galactica, a hop staff wielding heroine, patrols in karate kick mode through the heavens. Dry hopped with Galaxy hops, a clean malt backbone enhances the dark and luscious IPA flavors." Space Cake: "Why are Miracle Mike and his dog, Bionic, being chased by many evil laser beam shooting cupackes and two giant layer cake mother ships? Because we’re straight up lunatic fools? Well, maybe, but with a few brain cells remaining we managed to craft Space Cake double IPA, utilizing citrusy Mosaic hops and an immaculate West Coast style malt backbone. Dude… chill out. Enjoy some Space Cake." Blaecorn Unidragon: "Brewed with a monstrous amount of malt and combined with aggressive American hops, this beer is powerful and complex and designed to age. Smokiness is subtle but present and blends nicely with the rich, dark flavors." That's pretty great. Stoked to see what these guys bring to the state. See ya then, cheers all!
