About Us

We are a group of people that believe in America's Craft Brewers. We want to support the American owned and made Craft Brewers. We love the "TRUE" Craft Brewers and how they are determined to share their beers and their stories. The American Craft Brewers are typically a family or individual that started their breweries in tiny garages, kitchens, or any other place they could brew. They are passionate about their beer, and on a quest to produce the highest quality of beer.

 

The American Craft Brewer has overcome many obstacles. At Nebraska Craft Beer, we strive to do our part in Nebraska by voicing the passion of America's Craft Beers. When we are not sampling American Craft Beers, we will sample and promote fine "craft" import beers. Many of these types of beers are the foundation and renaissance of todays American Craft Beers.

 

To all of the fine brewers, we salute and thank you.

So What Is A Craft Brewer?

A craft brewer is any brewery that brews 'craft beers' right? It's not exactly that simple.

The Craft Brewers Association defines a Craft Brewer as a small, independant, and traditional brewer.

 

Small is defined as a brewer with an annual production of 6 million barrels of beer or less. Beer production is attributed to a brewer according to the rules of alternating proprietorships. Flavored malt beverages are not considered beer for purposes of this definition.

 

Independent is defined as a brewer with less than 25% of the craft brewery being owned or controlled (or equivalent economic interest) by an alcoholic beverage industry member, who is not themselves a craft brewer.

 

Traditional is defined as a brewer who has either an all malt flagship (the beer which represents the greatest volume among that brewers brands) or has at least 50% of its volume in either all malt beers or in beers which use adjuncts to enhance, rather than lighten flavor.

 

So basically, Craft Brewers and small with the hallmark of their brewery being innovation.They incorporate historic styles with unique twists and develop new styles that have no precedent. They produce beers withtraditional ingredients like malted barley; interesting and sometimes non-traditional ingredients are often added for distinctiveness. Like coriander, chocolate, or juniper berries.

 

Craft brewers tend to be very involved in their communities through philanthropy, product donations, volunteerism, and sponsorship of events and have a distinctive, individualistic approach to connecting with their customers. They maintain integrity by what they brew and their general independence, which is free from interest by a non-craft brewers like Mega-Wall Street & Foreign owned breweries.

 

The majority of Americans actually live within 10 miles of a craft brewer! Who knew?!
