Situated in the cool and eclectic Old Market section of Omaha along with many other nice restaurants, bars, theaters, and shops. This is an enormous place. Very dark, with brick walls, hardwood floors, a large bar area, and lots of restaurant space on multiple levels.
They served 7 of their own brews, plus bottled beers. The brews will appeal to most tastes (Blonde, Pale, ESB, IPA, Oatmeal Stout, Scotch Ale, Wheat, Honey-Raspberry), but they really need a good brown ale and perhaps a porter. The IPA was fairly average. They claim 55 IBU's, but it sure didn't seem too hoppy. It was crisp and refreshing, but not full of hops power. The stout was very tasty, although a bit watery.
The menu covers the whole spectrum of meat, fish, and pasta. I had a burger and fries, which were okay, nothing special. Very decent and worth a visit, but I wsn't tempted to stay all night and sample all the selections.

I like to go here anytime that Im in Omaha for business. Its located in the Old Market, which is an area of town that has been refurbished and now contains shops, bars, restaurants, etc.
The building is very attractive. It is light and airy and they did a nice job of maintaining some of the old architectural features. It is slighty more fancy than some brew pubs, but not stuffy at all.
The beer is good. I enjoyed their wheat beer and their pale ale. The honey raspberry ale is fine, but I can only have one, because it becomes a little too sweet. The ESB is well within style.
The food is also slightly fancier than pub fare. It is solid, if not outstanding and portions are decent. I have even hosted a few business diners here and have had good results.
The service given by the bar staff is very good. They are knowledgeable about beer and not stingy with samples. The wait staff was just ok and could use a little more training.
Seems to draw a nice crowd with a mix of locals and business travelers. I would recommend a stop when in Omaha.

This is an excellent place to quench your thirst and get some good food besides. The atmosphere was of an old building that had been remodeled, leaving some of the old decor around (old bricks etc.). There were ten pool tables to play on up-stairs with a bar and tables as well. The in-house brewed beer was pretty good, with the average selection (porter, ESB, English and Scottish Ales, hefeweizen, lager, raspberry wheat, etc. with seasonals also avialable). I did not ask about the other beers offered as I like to enjoy in-house brewed when I go to a brew-pub. One drawback was the sampler tray was 75 cents per 4 oz. sample. The food however was excellent with a wide range of choices from pizza and burgers (~$8) to fillet mignon ($22). So an excellent choice for when in the area.
