Nebraska Brewing scores a solid 2nd Place!

Nebraska Brewing Company appears to have made entering contests a means to show beer geeks out there that they make quality beer and that a high quality beer can be had in Nebraska. I am all for this approach. It really can only be beneficial to the brewery. Think about it, if they get results back that say that the beer is not good enough, well, they don't let anyone know that and they go out and improve their beer. If they do well, well, they let the world know what they have done and who they have beat. This 2nd place showing in the US Open Beer Championship is one of those victories. Congrats Paul and crew! This is a great showing, well done!
