The second annual Omaha Beer Fest will take place this spring at a new venue: Aksarben Village’s Stinson Park. The new venue will give Nebraska’s growing craft beer culture more room to taste and appreciate specialty brews from all over the country at what is expected to be the largest craft beer festival in Nebraska. The Omaha Beer Fest will take place Friday and Saturday, May 18 and 19, during American Craft Beer Week.

Over 150 unique craft beers will be available for tasting from 40 breweries, including Boulevard Brewing Company (Kansas City), Green Flash (San Diego) and Ska Brewing (Durango, CO). Brewers and representatives from many of the breweries will be on hand to sample their crafts and meet their fans.

Seminars, comparative tastings and special pairings will be offered throughout the event at the on-site Beer Academy.

Attendance to all events supports Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy, the official festival beneficiary. Tickets available for all events beginning Friday, February 17 online at

Omaha Beer Fest is produced by Urban Events, Inc. Urban Events also produces the annual Riverfront Wine Festival and Omaha Restaurant Week.
