Attention homebrewers! Omaha Beer Week is upon us, and Benson Brewery has a special one for the homebrew community. We’re hosting a competition for the best homebrews in town, with the winner getting a chance to brew with us in-house this spring. We look forward to trying your beer!

The Details:
• Drop off your bottles anytime during open hours at Benson Brewery from February 13–25, 2018. (NOTE: We’ll now be closed on Feb 12th!)
• Competition will be open to all BJCP Beer categories.
• One entry per brewer. Only one bottled required.
• Beers must have a BJCP label to be considered, and feel free to include any other details. http://www.bjcp.org/docs/SCP_BottleID.pdf

The Winning Brew:
Dependent on style, the winner will be offered the chance to scale up their recipe and come brew at Benson Brewery this spring. If the winning beer was brewed with any wild yeast or bacteria, the brewer will be offered the chance to collaborate on a different, clean recipe with our brewer and come brew on our system. The winner will also receive a 1/6th bbl keg of their beer once it’s brewed on our system.

Evan Bartels LIVE at SchillingBridge @ SchillingBridge Cork and Tap House

Come on down to The Bridge for an intimate evening of acoustic music from one of Lincoln’s greatest singer/songwriters!

Evan Bartels is a lot of things, but above all else he is a story teller. He has dedicated his life to living in a way that encompasses all facets of the human experience and capturing those feelings and emotions in his songwriting. The words that you can’t find when you wish only to know someone has felt what you are feeling… that’s what is put into his songs and they grab you and resonate in your bones.

The Cave Sessions with Matt Cox @ Blue Blood Brewing Company
Mar 1 @ 8:00 pm – 10:30 pm
The Cave Sessions with Matt Cox @ Blue Blood Brewing Company

Join us for a special acoustic evening with Matt Cox in Robber’s Cave.

It will be very limited seating so make sure you reserve your spot in advance.

21 and OVER Show

$20

Tickets on Sale January 5th at Noon.

Due to the nature of the seating arrangement please try to purchase tickets in even numbers. We reserve the right to split parties in order to accommodate all ticket holders.

Please read all info before purchasing tickets.

Due to the historical nature of Robbers Cave, modifications to the landmark or its structure that would make the landmark available to everyone are unable to be installed, and due to physical limitations imposed by the natural structure, all areas within the landmark may not be accessible by everyone.

Warning: Robber’s Cave contains uneven flooring, low overhead, and narrow passageways. Cave tour participants acknowledge and assume the risks inherent in a cave tour.

A little info on how the Cave Sessions will work:

The Cave Sessions are a tribute to the history of the cave and a celebration of music in its most natural form. It is a very intimate performance with seating capacity for 40 people. There are 10 small cocktail tables with 4 seats at each table. Due to the nature of the space Blue Blood Brewing Co. staff will begin seating guests 30 minutes prior to the start of the show. We will do everything we can to accommodate your party but seating capacity for each table will be taken into consideration based on the number of guests in your party. Tables and chairs are not allowed to be moved or combined.

If you would like to make food a part of your evening we would love to feed you. Therefore, food and drinks will be available for purchase in the taproom prior to the performance. There will be no food service in the cave during or prior to the event. However cocktail servers will be available the entire time to ensure your thirst requirements are quenched. If you will be eating prior to the show we recommend you plan accordingly to ensure you have enough time to enjoy your vittles before heading down into the cave.

Please note. Cave sessions are about the music. The natural acoustics in the cave create a wonderful environment for musicians to perform unplugged and acoustically, allowing guests to hear music in its most natural form. We ask that you please respect the performer and those around you by keeping your table talk to a minimum. Those same acoustics that allow for a very unique music experience will also allow voices to carry and amplify. There will be plenty of time before and after the show to catch up on current events with your friends, so while the musician is performing, please sit back, enjoy, and listen peacefully. Applause, whistling, cheers, hoots and hollers of appreciation are all welcome between songs. Loud table talk however will not be tolerated during the performance. If you are disruptive you may be asked to leave.
