Rooted in the soil of South Dakota, we began growing hops in 2012 on the same land our great grandfather built his homestead on in 1882. We are proud to be an independent, family-owned hop farm and farmhouse brewery. A Homestead Brew embraces a field to glass approach utilizing hops we grow on our farm and fresh, locally sourced fruit and honey.
We’ve spent years perfecting our recipes to become the well-balanced brews that they are today. From our award-winning Jalapeño Pineapple Pils, to our crowd pleasing Red Lager, to our barrel-aged Epic Blackout Stout, we have the perfect brew waiting for you. Can’t decide? Order a beer flight! There’s always something new on tap.
A dream and a couple too many beers set the groundwork for Lucky Bucket Brewing Company. Our passion for great beer grew with each barrel we brewed. Sometimes we’d nail it and sometimes it was laughable. But along the way, we brewed a lager that we just couldn’t stop drinking. With a grin on our face and a mug in hand, we knew this was to be our first release: Lucky Bucket Pre-Prohibition Lager, our handcrafted, session beer. From there the rest is history. Hoppy libations, barrel aged ales, bold stouts, tart sour beers – you name it, we brew it! Come and hang out with us at the brewery. We are always here brewing up a new delicious creation. Cheers!

The ancients believed paradise existed at the highest point in the universe within a fiery sphere they called “The Empyrean.” Inspired by this sentiment, we set out to infuse every batch of our handcrafted ales with our own unique notion of paradise—take a journey with us, one sip at a time.
Crow Peak Brewing Company started in the spring of 2007 as a modest 5-barrel brewery with on-premise sales in the form of pints and off-premise sales in the form of 64-ounce growlers. The brewery was extremely successful, and in order to provide a quality local beer to other parts of the State and beyond, a brewery expansion was in order. The beautiful new brewery building opened for business in December of 2009.
White Elm Brewing
White Elm Brewing Company strives to bring modern takes on rustic ales to southeast Nebraska. We love funk; farmhouse styles, saisons, grisette and biere de garde find their way through our fermenters on a regular basis. Between brewing our rustic ales we weave Scotch Ales, ESB’s, and loads of hoppy ales through our brew schedule. Look for cans of White Elm Brewing Company’s beers to hit shelves throughout the Lincoln and Omaha Metro areas in early 2017.

Brau Brothers Brewing
We proudly brew our beers with locally grown hops and barley. When breweries take responsibility for their beer, from grain to glass, unique and quality beers are produced that are distinct to our region. For this reason, we collaborate with small producers – from small town distilleries for barrels, to nano coffee roasters for beans, we pride ourselves on finding friends in rural places.
