OHIOWA – Many Nebraska breweries are brewing, and will soon be serving, a special beer called ‘Nebraska Strong Red Ale’ to raise funds for flood relief efforts.
The recipe for the beer was first developed at 5168 Brewing in Lincoln, and has been distributed to 26 brewers across the state, including Jim Stutzman of Lazy Horse Brewing in Ohiowa.
Stutzman says this was the least that brewers could do to give back to people who have been so good to them.
“We can’t do the things we do without a lot of these people,” he said. “Whether it’s the flood victims clear up north or people around Omaha, these people support our businesses. This is just a chance for us to support them back.”
All proceeds from the sale of the Nebraska Strong Red Ale will go to a flood relief organization of each brewery’s choice.
Stone Hollow Brewing of Beatrice will also participate, along with nine total breweries in Lincoln.
The Nebraska Strong Red Ale will be available beginning Apr. 28th, and will be on tap until supplies run out.
