Featured Beer from Brickway Brewery: IPL India Pale Lager & Hef Wheat Beer
Opened in December of 2013, Omaha’s Brickway Brewery & Distillery is relatively new, but founder Zac Triemert is no stranger to the craft brewing scene, having founded Lucky Bucket Brewery before marrying his wife and partner in the Brickway venture. In an area of Omaha’s Old Market boasting cobblestone streets, vintage brick buildings, etc., they originally opened under the name *Borgata, re-naming it Brickway to satisfy some right-to-name conflicts, and to pay homage to their new home. The fact that Zac holds masters degrees in both brewing and distilling from Scotland’s esteemed Heriot-Watt University makes it a wise choice as there are many parallels between the two crafts.
So Brickway is breaking new ground while tapping into Omaha’s rich history as Omaha’s first distillery since Prohibition, and the state’s only combination brewery/distillery. Their mission is to make craft beer and spirits fun, approachable and honest; balancing art with mad science, palate with process, instinct with chemistry.
