Nebraska Brewing Company will host the 5th Annual Great Nebraska Beer Festival on Saturday August 24, 2013 in Papillion’s Shadow Lake Towne Center. The festival will run from 1-6 p.m. with a special VIP session from Noon – 1 p.m.
Attending the festival are American Craft breweries representing 14 different states from Florida to California to Hawaii, including nearly every Nebraska Brewery. Brewers, Brewery Owners and representatives from the participating breweries will be available to interact with festival goers. Over 400 different American Craft beers will be available for craft beer lovers to enjoy. Additionally, four educational seminars led by brewers and brewery owners will be available free of charge, with your ticket, during the festival. Information on all attending breweries and event details can be found at www.greatnebraskabeerfest.com.
The day’s events will include an opening ceremony by the Omaha Pipes & Drums. Food will be available for attendees to purchase throughout the day. Enjoy live music from Southpaw Bluegrass Band and festival favorite Grand Theft Girlfriend.
As in past years, a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Nebraska Craft Brewers Guild as well the Histiocytosis Foundation (www.histio.org). Histiocytosis is a rare blood disorder affecting 1 in 200,000 children typically diagnosed between the ages of 2 and 9 years old. With no federal funding for a cause or cure, Great Nebraska Beer Festival is working to raise funds and awareness for children being treated locally.
General Admission Tickets are $40 in advance ($45 day of event) and include a tasting glass and unlimited samples throughout the afternoon. Tickets can be purchased at www.greatnebraskabeerfest.com or at Nebraska Brewing Company.
