I was extremely impressed with the food that was served. The spinach artichoke dip was the BEST that I have ever had. Absolutely amazing! Our entire family devoured it. We also had a pizza and it was so good. My husband enjoyed the beer. My...More

Dropped in for pizza. Never been to Kearney before. Server was Kyle M. Friendly and helpful. Helped me select an IPA from their large menus of house brews. Smoked IPA was superb. Ordered a Supreme pizza that my wife (and I) rate as one of...More

Kearney isn't the type of place where I expect to have an outstanding culinary experience, but I was pleased to find this little craft brewery that serves pizza and other apps. I'm a Fort Collins guy so I recognize that I'm unreasonably snobby when it...More

We stopped in to try the local brew! We had a flight of some tasty beers! I was disappointed with the menu. We like to try different appetizers and that part of the menu was lacking for me personally. We ended up with calzones that...More

We stopped and stayed the night in Kearney on the way to Wyoming. The pizza and cheese sticks here are the best we've ever had. There was only one waitress to 5-6 tables, but she did good and was very nice and helpful. We took...More

You don't expect such brewing expertise in the heartland. Imperial Stout (Your Argument is Invalid RIS, 9.8% ABV), plus I Concede the Point Imperial IPA, 11.5% (!) ABV are beyond outstanding. And the food is good too! Pizza and a calzone both got raves from...More

Well it is a bar.....its family friendly on non Husker days but I might be a bit hesitant to bring kids in to watch a game. I'd agree with Dwight.
