3rd Annual Nebraska Brewers Barbecue

The folks at BeerCornerUSA are hosting their 3rd annual barbecue featuring beers from Nebraska brewers only on July 9th. It's really great to see that an event like this can feature 15 breweries, not to mention the two breweries in planning, Jukes Ale Works and Vis Major Brewing, who will be pouring complimentary samples. It wasn't too long ago that the number of breweries pouring at a Nebraska breweries only event would have been much smaller.

The beer garden is open from 1-8pm, with numerous summer seasonal beers from breweries located throughout Nebraska. Delicious food from Ozark Smoked Meat & BBQ plus homemade sides from the Crescent Moon will be available for purchase. Barry Boyce Band will be playing our favorite drinking songs from 2-7pm.

Beer and Yoga at Farnam House - The Beer Yogis

Here's a new and unique event coming to Omaha in July. Beer and yoga hosted by Farnam House and The Beer Yogis on July 13th. The ladies behind The Beer Yogis, Melissa Klimo‐Major and Mikki Trowbridge, are going on a one month, nation-wide tour of craft breweries hosting yoga classes at each one. The benefits of yoga are increasingly well-known, and we all know the benefits of craft beer. Why not put the two together? Check the press release below for more details.

Beer Yogis’ Cross-County Tour Shares Benefits of Yoga and Celebrates American Craft Brews
Limited city tour visits Omaha in July

SALEM, OR — June 12, 2016 —There’s a new event coming to cities across the U.S. celebrating two top industries—craft beer and yoga. Experienced yoga teachers, Melissa Klimo-Major and Mikki Trowbridge, have come together to launch The Beer Yogis and embark on a month-long, nationwide tour promoting the benefits of yoga inside some of the country’s major craft breweries. Both women are E-RYT 200 credentialed yoga instructors and committed to sharing the benefits of yoga along with their appreciation for a good craft ale.

The Beer Yogis events are held only at craft breweries—allowing participants to visit their local brewery and see how their favorite brews are made, try samples and practice Vinyasa yoga all under one roof. The yoga sessions are designed for all levels of skill, whether a novice or more experienced, and to create a connection of self and a connection to others.

“We decided to take this concept across America this summer after seeing the great response to our New York City trip last fall,” said Melissa Klimo-Major. “We want to enhance a yoga community where everyone feels welcome and look forward to celebrating the relationships that are built through these yoga and beer events,” said Mikki Trowbridge.

The tour, which kicks off on June 29 in Ohio, will make a stop in Omaha for an event hosted by Farnam House Brewing Company on July 13th. The summer tour spans almost two dozen locations across the country, including breweries in the instructors’ hometowns of Cleveland and Salem, Oregon.

“Farnam House is thrilled to be able to host this event in our brewery. The mindfulness employed in both yoga and brewing unites these two loving communities, and we’re excited to be able to share our craft with The Beer Yogis. We hope that this experience will help to introduce those who may not be familiar with our product to our trademark style of Saisons, Farmhouse ales, and sour beers and give them the opportunity to try our locally-sourced menu. Special thanks to The Beer Yogis for including us on their nationwide tour and we are excited for what the future holds for pairings of yoga and beer,” said Gillian Cromwell of Farnam House.

Scratchtown Brewing Beer Dinner @ HopCat Lincoln (6/28)

From HopCat Lincoln:

What: Scratchtown Brewing Beer Dinner
When: Tuesday, June 28 at 6:30pm
Where: HopCat, 601 P St, Lincoln

Join us for an expertly paired 4-course, 5 beer dinner featuring our friends at Scratchtown Brewing.

Duck Confit Wontons with Raspberry Gastrique - Duck confit, cream cheese, red pepper stuffed wontons, served with raspberry gastrique.

Paired with Tiny Tiles Single Hopped Pale Ale: A single hop pale ale with Mosaic hops, this beer offers a complex array of tropical fruit, citrus, berry, herbal (dank!), earthy and slight pine characteristics. We use two row barley and honey malt for the malt backbone. It also finishes a touch dry, crisp and refreshing.

Rainbow Chard Salad - Rainbow chard, apples, feta, radishes, and pecans drizzled with Lemon Vinaigrette.

Paired with Big Joe Pils: light, clean and refreshing. Named after the Big Joe Polka show, this is a perfect compliment to winter polkas or summer lakin'.

Salmon en papillote with orange beurre blanc - Spaghetti squash, fresh dill, lemon, and carrots.

Paired with Smoketoberfest: A slightly smoked version of the Oktoberfest-style marzen.

Beeramisu - Stout beer, lady fingers, mascarpone cheese, and coco powder.

Paired with Sideburns' Milk Stout: A roasty stout with a nice body from the addition of Lactose Sugar. The Lactose Sugar, derived from milk, is not fermented by brewer’s yeast and it adds a creaminess with a slight sweetness to the beer.

Chardonnay Oak Aged Wonder Twins DIPA: a chardonnay oaked version of our Wonder Twins DIPA -  juicy citrusy flavor with a finish of dank from the Mosaic hops. When paired with the oak and Chardonnay, you'll pick up a hint of the oak tannins and an explosion of Chardonnay fruitiness.

Get your tickets HERE.

Defiance Brewing begins Nebraska distribution

Hays, Kansas-based brewery to arrive in June

From their press release---

Defiance Brewing Co is heading north! We released our first beers in late 2013, quickly expanded our reach throughout our home state and have since added a good portion of Missouri.

In 2014, we made our first appearance in the state at the Great Nebraska Beer Fest where we met great friends and found a thriving craft beer culture. After our first visit, we knew we wanted to be a part of the Nebraska beer scene.

Defiance has partnered with Arbella Distributing Co. out of Omaha to handle statewide sales. We will be releasing our full lineup of beers including Thrasher, Gutch, Fuzzy Knuckles, and Willy Nilly, as well as a rotating seasonal lineup. 

Check out our website or Facebook page for more info and special events in your area. For those more adventurous types, Defiance has a taproom open Thursday-Sunday where we pour local favorites and weekly one-off brews. Come visit us sometime and we promise we will be as welcoming as the great people of Nebraska have been to us.

--Cheers to ambitious beer, see you in June!
