Don't forget (not that you would, of course) about the Great Nebraska Beer Fest this Saturday, the 22nd. Personally, this is my favorite beer fest of the year and I strive to never miss it.
There is huge number of breweries (90!) signed up to pour their beer for you there, including many that do not yet distribute in Nebraska, as well as three seminars you can attend to learn about the history of craft beer, the history of Bell's Brewery, and something called the Nebraska Knife Job. Some guy named Ahman Green will be there too. I think I may have heard that name in the past. I think he played some sort of sport or something. ;)
Portions of proceeds from ticket sales will also go to UNMC's Global Blindness Division to help them literally cure blindness for people across the world.
Check out this clip of Kim and Jessica of Nebraska Brewing Company and UNMC Global Blindness Division, respectively, on Morning Blend Omaha last week.
