729 Q St, Lincoln, NE 68508 (402) 434-5960
It began with a dream that we could brew full-flavored beer in the great state of Nebraska. In late 1990, that dream became our state’s first brewpub, Lazlo’s Brewery & Grill. Since then demand for our beer has grown, so we expanded our pub and Empyrean Brewing Company was born. Today we still dream big, even while we handcraft our beers in small, flavor–filled batches. So enjoy an Empyrean beer— the taste of dreams come true.

HopCat Lincoln opened on March 19, 2016, a chilly day warmed by the enthusiasm of more than 200 souls waiting to get inside. With 132 taps HopCat - Lincoln has Nebraska's largest selection of craft beer on tap, including more than 20 selections made right here in Nebraska. HopCat was envisioned, designed, stocked, and staffed with one mission in mind: To bring you great beer. What is great beer? It's a beer made with care and pride. It might be a local beer or one from across the globe. It could be your usual pint, or a beer that you had no idea existed. Every once in a while, it's a beer you never would have ordered but for the fact that your server or bartender suggested it. We're not a sports bar, but we love sports. Want to watch the game? We've got you covered with 52-inch TVs viewable from most seats. Don't want to watch the game? That's cool too. We keep our music on (almost) all the time. Husker games are the big exception to that rule. Our Local 20 features only the best examples of Nebraska-made beers from a variety of of breweries representing the most popular styles. Our rotating 112 taps feature beers from Nebraska and elsewhere around the world. Often these are seasonal beers, one-offs or just something unusual we were able to bring to you. We don't carry any macro beers like Miller, Bud or Coors, but we're happy to help drinkers of those beers discover something they'll love from the world's best craft breweries. We do have one "lawn mower" tap, which is usually PBR. If you're not in the mood for a beer, you can get a glass of wine, hard cider, mead or a cocktail from our full bar. We also offer a selection of fine Kentucky bourbons, and Pepsi products
Jake’s Cigars and Spirits
101 N 14th St, Lincoln, NE 68508 (402) 261-5944
In September of 1998 a small but conspicuous tobacco shop opened on 14th and O Street. At the time no one expected that this shop, Jake’s Cigars, would eventually evolve into the entity that it has become. Over the course of 17 years Jake’s has morphed from that tiny shop to a Cigar bar and purveyor of Craft Beers and Fine Spirits. Our goal is to ensure that there is a constant rotation of often unique and hard to get beers and spirits. In the fall of 2016 we added a non-smoking section to not only increase space but to share the Jake’s experience with the non-smoking community. The result is a unique bar with 38 rotating Craft Beer handles and immense collection of spirits. Inevitably there will be something here at Jake’s that will be distinctive and new to you! Just as there is a diversity of Beer and Spirits there is also a diversity of music and clientele. Pair this with a staff that is knowledgeable and friendly, Jake’s fosters a “family” environment where all feel welcome. Jake’s Cigars is your one stop spot for Beer, Spirits, Cigars and most importantly fun.
