As a frequent visitor to our neighbors to the north, Nebraska, and coveter of beers from Nebraska Brewing Company, I feel it necessary to point out the Great Nebraska Beer Fest at the end of this month. Most of the beers available are local to the Missouri, Iowa, and Nebraska area with some Minnesota and Colorado beers thrown in. But, Nebraska has some great breweries and a short 2 and a half hour drive to Omaha may be worth your while. Go ahead and check out the list of breweries and beers. The Great Nebraska Beer Fest happens August 27th.
