Neighborhood bar, lots of locals on a Sunday afternoon. Long narrow place dominated by a traditional wood bar, small patio out back. A whopping 62 taps - only a handful were local beers, about a quarter were Belgian, and then a bunch of fairly common California and Oregon things. Bottles had a few local choices. I sat at the bar and watched the bar lady churn out about a million bloody marys, she was really working hard. Worth a look while in the area.
Un endroit qui sera toujours spécial pour moi alors qu’on y a passé le réveillon de Noël au milieu de notre déménagement à San Diego. Très chaleureux avec une sélection plus qu’adéquate et variée. Situé à l’entrée du quartier Benson qui est à surveiller pour les prochaines années.
I’m not sure what neighborhood this is but it’s got to be the coolest in Omaha. It has the feel of a nice 19th century Western bar with old dagurotype prints on the wall, high key lighting, the of stuffed animal head, and a very large bar that must have been a pain in the ass to install. In addition to the large bar there are also couches and booths to hang out. Lot of regional and Belgian craft taps available and the prices were quite reasonable with most offerings under $6. If you’re looking for a neighborhood pub in Omaha with a great beer list, this is your place.
This is the most quintessential neighborhood bar that chose to offer quality beer that I’ve visited. It appeared that everyone knew each other, or soon will. The beer selection wasn’t overwhelming, but covered all the necessary bases. You can order food from the next door farm-to-table restaurant, Lot 2. Highly recommended.
A great bar in the Heart of Benson. Tons of draft beers, tons of bottles. The staff is fairly educated on their offerings and the management is extremely well educated. They have a great variety so no matter what your mood you can find a brew for you. The atmosphere when I have been in there has been generally classy. The clientele is all over the place with your typical Benson hipsters to white collar beer geeks, to the layman drinker. They cocktails are also very tasty and bartenders seem to know their way around some cool old school drinks.
Overall, a wonderful addition to the Benson bar scene.
Make sure to check this bar out and then Hop over to Jakes, or Beercade. If you head midtown hit up Crescent Moon. And if you make it out west make sure to check out The Lauter Tun.
