Nebraska Brewing Company Adopts A Bastard

By | Beer Release, Events, PressRelease | No Comments

11 May 2016

Nebraska Brewing Company is partnering with the Arrogant Bastard itself to adopt the Arrogant Bastard Ale for a brief stay at its Brewpub location in Shadow Lake, Papillion and Taproom in La Vista beginning Thursday May 12, 2016 beginning at 3:00 p.m.

According to legend, since being spawned in 1997, Arrogant Bastard Ale has produced a movement that has continually challenged fizzy yellow beer drinkers by focusing on intensity, flavor, and quality.

Each hand-­‐picked adoptive brewery of Arrogant Bastard Ale is entrusted to foster the sacred recipe to brew a single, limited batch of the Liquid Arrogance to be served on draft in their taproom for on site imbibing only, with all proceeds going to charity. With limited quantities of the liquid arrogance available, beer lovers should mark their calendars and make their way to the respective locations to enjoy.

Nebraska Brewing Company has selected the Truhlsen Eye Institute. Championed by Dr. Michael Feilmeier and The University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC), the Global Blindness Prevention Division at Truhlsen Eye Institutes is dedicated to restoring sight to patients living with a curable or preventable form of blindness.. One hundred percent of every dollar donated is used to give the gift of sight back to patients living needlessly in darkness. The most recent campaign provided 952 sight-­‐restoring surgeries in 4 days in Ethiopia.
