Nebraska Brewing Company

Home for the holidays, I mentioned to friends and family the arrival of the Nebraska Brewing Company to Omaha and suggested we go. I'd caught a few posts on Gastronimc Fight Club, a local Omaha food blog, including a sneek peek at the Nebraska Brewing Company. A week came and went, and I arrived at the airport Friday morning not having been to this new brewery. In a funny twist of bad weather, I was delayed and had to spend another night in Omaha. There was one last dinner to be consumed and it was going to take place at the Nebraksa Bewing Company.

A small basket of house chips comes to every table. The chips are thick cut and crispy, dusted with a salty seasoning.

I had a great beer, the Belgian Wit. Unfortunately, at this time I can't find a description of the beer on the Nebraska Brewing Company website. I must have caught it at the end of its season. It was a wheat beer, served with an orange, and had a very smooth finish.

All the burgers on the menu are "infused" with flavor. This means that my bacon cheeseburger was not topped with bacon or cheese, instead, bacon and cheese were mixed in the meat and then grilled. It didn't really work for me. I didn't get any of the flavors I was expecting and was turned off by the side salad served without any vinagrette. Fries were decent.

Compared to the burger, dessert was incredible. I shared the chocolate cobbler with a friend. It would be wrong to call it a brownie, as the consistency is much softer, but it's not really pudding either. It is warm and gooey, topped with vanilla bean ice cream and cinnamon whipped cream. Totally delicious.

Wheneven I'm in Omaha, I'm going to try for a beer and dessert, but I'll probably skip the burger.

    Ate there last night. Our meal was very, very average. Fries were tasteless and stone cold. Steak was average. The ribs were good - very different - but good. Portions were tiny. I think they should stick to beer.

    Ate lunch at NBC 3-18-09. The Cardinal Ale had a very bitter aftertaste. Lunch special Cajun Meatloaf had too much spice, which was also in the gravy over the mashed potatoes. Couldn't escape the spice taste. Only plus was wife's chicken quesadilla was good. I don't see any reason to return.

    to start with, the chips were over seasoned, the soup was over cooked to the point of curdling, the steak with mushroom sauce was like a salt lick, the vegetables were over seasoned to the point of disgusting, and of all the things I wanted over seasoned, the 'garlic' mashed potatoes had no flavor at all. To top it off I sat most of the dinner with an empty glass of iced tea, not a single refill, they forgot the catchup that my husband had asked for, THEN he gave us the wrong bill, now our account shows two charges for a dinner I insist my husband NOT pay for! YUCK!
