A Road Trip to Madison

Bless me O fermented one for I have sinned. I have been remiss in my duties to post mundane banter in the internet. Instead I have sat idly by as others took up that mantel by creating tip ten lists or reviews of beers sent to them free of charge by breweries seeking the approval of “experts”. Today as I write we are making our way across the country to Madison Wisconsin where we shall make pilgrimage to the Great Taste of the Midwest. Along the way we stopped in Omaha to visit Nebraska Brewing. Preconceptions are always interesting as its location in an upscale shopping center surprised me for some reason. We did learn they have just opened a larger facility nearby in a warehouse strip that looked very large in the blueprints we were shown. They maintain a 10 bbl brew house at their original location but have installed a 30 bbl one at the new one. In addition they have several rows of 120 bbl fermenter and a barrel room large enough for 450 barrels. There core offerings were solid and included a nice English style brown as well as an American IPA. They had several bottles of the barrel aged variety available to consume there or to take with you. We opted for a bottle of Black Betty, their barrel aged Imperial Stout, a most excellent elixir. Next stop Madison.
