It has been a year since I have started my craft beer journey across our great state of Nebraska. In a year's time, I have met so many incredible people and got to know the stories behind how they got their breweries started. Getting out on the road, I have gained a better appreciation from all of the cool places around our state.

For instance, last summer, I spent time on the Loup River in a cabin at Riverview Cabin Retreat. My family had a great time canoeing on the Loup River and visiting Scratchtown Brewing Company

Ord is a great small town and on a warm spring or summer day, Scratchtown's patio is amazing!

On a weekend trip last fall, a friend of mine and I got to enjoy the opening of Lost Way Brewery. On that same trip we were able to in at First Street Brewing in Hastings and Thunderhead Brewing in Axtel. In a short drive, three wonderful breweries!

Exploring our state can be so much fun! I have plans to check out the Cowboy Trail in Valentine. While I am there, I will be looking forward to stopping in and visiting Bolo Beer Co. These are just a few examples of places our state has to offer. In Omaha and Lincoln, there are events every weekend and I never have a problem sitting down to a good beer and meeting others that enjoy craft beer. It is always fun to hear about the kinds of beer that people enjoy!

Nebraska Craft Beer is a community of so many fun, dedicated people who work hard each day so that us craft beer enthusiasts get to enjoy great beer.  The Nebraska Craft Brewers Guild is a big part of helping to grow the industry. This year they have started an amazing program called the Nebraska Beer Alliance for craft beer supporters.
