This morning I found myself at a very cool brewpub/restaurant in Omaha.
The Upstream Brewery is one I haven't even heard of before. It turns out that they don't sell outside of the Omaha area and they weren't there a decade ago when I lived there.
Anyway, this was a really nice place, and I wish there was something like it in Louisville.
My first beer was their Dundee 90 Shilling Scotch Ale. This was my first scotch ale, and I guess it was a little blander than I expected. I did really like it though. Before I left I talked to one of the brewers who told me that this particular batch was indeed a little bland and the next batch would be more flavorful.
My next beer was their Firehouse ESB. This was another really good beer, and I don't even like ESBs that much generally.
Since it was still before noon and I hadn't even had lunch yet I decided that two semi-strong beers would be enough.
