Dan Matuszek, owner of Omaha original Brix – A Wine and Spirits Experience, is announcing plans to open a second business in Midtown Crossing.  Called Grane (a tribute to the staples of whiskey making with a creative spelling twist), the comfortable after-work spot will blend a growing affinity for whiskeys and craft cocktails with the most modern, small portion whiskey dispensing/sampling technology – all wrapped in the feel and décor of pre- and post-prohibition 1920’s and 30’s.

WineEmotion™ USA, known for its line of hi-tech wine dispensing systems, is collaborating with Matuszek to create the new whiskey-dispensing “Bartender by WineEmotion™.” Like its wine-focused counterpart, “Bartender” will enhance the customer experience by perfectly measuring sample-sized pours of whiskeys at .5oz, 1oz, and 1.5oz levels and dispensing it in its ideal form.

Scheduled to open in early June, Grane will occupy a 2,500 sq. ft. space in Midtown Crossing between Cantina Laredo and Saints Pub + Patio, separate from Brix. In addition to its whiskeys and craft cocktails, Grane will offer a selection of whiskey-inspired draught beers on tap, wine by the glass and a small appetizer menu.

One year after opening Brix at Midtown Crossing, Matuszek is thrilled to be bringing the Grane concept to the development. For more information about Grane or Brix, please contact Dan Matuszek at (402) 880-8857 or Dan.Matuszek@brixomaha.com.
