The 19 Essential Events for Every Day of Omaha Beer Week 2019

February 15, 2019Add a CommentPosted By

Omaha has been a consistently growing craft beer destination in the United States over the past few years. The Travel Channel even named us as one of the top 10 new beer cities in the country. Because of our recent craft beer notoriety along with the several incredible breweries that call Omaha home, it’s no surprise that Omaha Beer Week has become one of the most popular events of the year in the area.

This year, Omaha Beer Week will be hosting almost 200 exciting events, from tastings to bingo nights, all catered to our beer-loving residents. But with that many events, it can be hard to figure out where to spend your time — that’s why we rounded up the ones that we feel are absolutely essential for you to attend. Feel free to check out the full list of events here or jump into our favorites below!
