Since opening in 1996 as part of an “unlinked chain” started by Wynkoop Brewery, Upstream (a translation of the Native American name for Omaha) has gained independence, opened a second pub, and brewed varieties of beers not previously found in Nebraska.

Brewing secret

Developments include barrel-ageing, and the use of wild yeast.

Batch 1,000 Barley Wine

beer style: Barley Wine
alcohol content: 10.2% ABV

Caramel and vinous on the nose and palate, blending with lively fruity esters. Rich, almost chewy, palate.

Grand Cru

Aged for a year in oak wine barrels. Earthy and woody nose, delicate citrus and honey on the palate, ultimately balanced.
